High asset divorce leaves Porsha Williams empty-handed

"The Real Housewives of Atlanta" star Porsha Williams and her then-husband Kordell Stewart filed for divorce in March 2013 after just two years of marriage.

Williams is the granddaughter of the Rev. Hosea Williams, a civil rights leader and philanthropist. She joined the cast of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" in the show's fifth season and couple's relationship was prominently featured on the show. Other cast members, including NeNe Leakes, routinely expressed concern regarding the relationship, particularly over their perception of how Stewart treated Williams.

The marriage officially ended three months ago. When the settlement was reached, Williams walked away with nothing. Stewart was able to keep his assets separate and retained control over everything, including his properties and business assets, according to legal documents.

Before marrying in 2011, Stewart owned two properties, two vehicles, retirement benefits and a number of business ventures stemming from his time playing with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Since the divorce, Williams has moved on from her two-year marriage. She's currently dating someone new, though because of this person's fame and notoriety, she's choosing to keep the relationship private.

"He's well-known, so I'm being cautious. He's someone very special. He's standing out from the pack right now. We'll see how that turns out," said Williams.

Whether you're involved in a high asset divorce like Williams and Stewart or you're a regular couple going through a divorce, you need someone on your side to make sure your interests are protected. Whether you're concerned with protecting your half of marital property, including pensions, property interests or retirement plans, an experienced divorce attorney can provide answers to your questions. A qualified attorney can help you throughout every step of the way, including with forensic accounting or your property settlement.
