Reality couple's marriage "tanks"; wife seeks divorce

There are many reasons why a marriage may not last. If there are outside pressures such as a family-run business, then it may come as no surprise when one spouse files for a divorce. Colorado residents who operate a company often have genuine concerns over how their business will be affected.

It was recently reported that the couple who star in the Animal Planet reality series "Tanked" are headed for divorce court. The divorce petition was filed by the wife shortly after an alleged incident of domestic abuse. According to an unconfirmed report, during an argument, the wife, Heather King, purportedly slapped and kicked her husband, Wayde King. Ms. King was arrested but was released later that day following a misdemeanor assault charge.

The couple have been married for approximately 21 years and are both involved in the family business, Acrylic Tank Manufacturing, which designs and produces creative aquarium habitats. Ms. King is the accountant for the company and has an active role in its operations. According to the petition, she is seeking primary custody of their children and for child support that would equal an estimated 25 percent of her former husband's income. She is also seeking spousal support and medical insurance for the children.

Neither of the parties have publicly commented on either the assault charges or the impending divorce. There has been no announcement as to whether the reality series will be affected by the divorce. It is unknown whether the couple had any pre- or post-marital agreements that would protect the interests of the company. Colorado residents who are seeking a divorce may be best served by obtaining the assistance of an attorney who can provide expertise in the handling of property divisions that include a family-run enterprise in a manner that may allow the business to continue if one so desires.
