Andrew Dice Clay involved in a high asset divorce

Andrew Dice Clay is getting a divorce from his third wife. His high asset divorce was filed in court on March 25, 2014. "The Insider with Yahoo" states that Clay, who is originally from Brooklyn, New York, and is a comedian and an actor, has officially separated from his current wife, Valerie Silverstein, as of March 18, 2014.

His real name is Andrew Silverstein. He and his wife have been married since February 14, 2010, and have no children together. While this divorce looks normal on paper, he and his wife are spending some quality time together. Dice says that the word "marriage" was putting pressure on their relationship.

Clay, who is 56 years old, spoke to People magazine and since they have filed for the high asset divorce, they appear to be more in love with each other than ever. Interestingly enough, they even celebrated their divorce with dinner together at Craig's Restaurant in West Hollywood.

The couple has filed a joint petition stating that they don't have any separate assets that are worth over $40,000 or any debt exceeding $6,000. They agreed not to seek spousal support as well.

They seem to be agreeable with each other and, as evidence, Clay tweeted that he considered his wife, Valerie, his "babe."

Clay is working on a film called "The Filthy Truth" and is well known for his coarse comedy stand-up routines from the 1980s and 90s. His work was banned from MTV because of his use of profanity during a live show. This ban was lifted in 2011. He was in the film "Blue Jasmine" and this definitely gave his career a re-start.

Not all divorce actions are equal. If there are multiple assets of high value, this can bring in an element of complexity and emotion. If you are considering a divorce and you have substantial assets, you may want to contact someone who can ensure that your best interests are served.
