Slash Files For Divorce From Perla Ferrar

Saul Hudson, also known as Slash from Guns 'N' Roses, has filed for divorce after nine years of marriage to his wife Perla Ferrar. CBS News reports that the guitarist filed for the dissolution of marriage through the Los Angeles County Superior Court based on irreconcilable differences.

Apparently this isn't Slash's first divorce. The man was once married to actress Renne Suran but the two divorced after five years of being a married couple. Hence, Slash is probably familiar with the divorce process and how long the family law procedures can actually take. California requires a six month waiting period for a divorce to be completed. Arizona, on the other hand, only requires a 60 day waiting period from the time the divorce was filed to the time the divorce decree is finalized.

Slash may also have troubles with child custody in his divorce case. He and his wife have two children, ages 8 and 6. He is asking the Los Angeles courts for joint physical custody and joint legal custody of the two children. Yet FindLaw states that courts rarely grant joint physical custody because of their potential to cause both personal difficulties and practical problems. A family law attorney will probably need to convince a judge that a joint legal custody and joint legal custody arrangement for the children is in the best interests of each of the children.
