Kardashian and Humphries married in August 2011 at an estate in Montecito, California. A mere 72 days later, Kardashian filed for divorce on October 31, 2011. Their lavish wedding was broadcast by E! Entertainment Television. Humphries alleges that Kardashian married him for the media attention
and to boost ratings of her show “Keeping Up With the Kardashians”
The trial is expected to last around three to five days. Information about Kardashian's reality TV business is likely to come up during the proceedings. Humphries' lawyer had asked that the trial wait until after basketball season. Two judges stated that Humphries' legal team had enough time to prepare for a May trial. Superior Court Judge Scott Gordon denied a request to postpone the trial, saying that truck drivers, policemen and firefighters were able to take time off work for legal proceedings and so could Humphries.
Marshall Waller, one of Humphries' lawyers, has filed paperwork to withdraw from the case. He said that he still wants to gain access to 13,000 hours of footage from reality shows featuring Kardashian in hopes of finding something to prove Humphries' accusations of fraud, though he hasn't gotten permission yet. Kardashian has denied that she committed fraud or got married for the sake of ratings. Her attorney has proclaimed Kardashian ready to go to court. Kardashian's mother, West, and Humphries have already given depositions.
If Humphries' lawyer can prove fraud, he could possibly convince a judge to consider annulling the marriage. An annulment basically undoes a marriage as if it never existed whereas a divorce is a much more complicated legal matter. The dissolution of a marriage is an emotional time that is difficult for everyone involved, including family friends and friends, and particularly children. A divorce is also expensive even when the two parties do not have a lot of assets like Humphries and Kardashian. A legal document preparer can assist people with a divorce for significantly less than a lawyer charges. Couples considering divorce should look into this option to relieve the financial burden and make the process a little bit easier.
