Parents of Amy King, cousin of the TV star Duggars, to divorce

Amy King used to appear on a reality TV show called "19 Kids and Counting." The show has since been cancelled amid a lot of controversy, and now her parents are splitting up. They had been married for nine years.

King is the cousin of two of the main stars of the show, Jessa Seewald and Jill Dillard. Both were Duggars before getting married and changing their names, as was King. Though not as big of a name as them, King had been on the show, and she recently spoke about the coming divorce.

Specifically, she said that she was not surprised. Her parents had had issues in the past, and they'd been in the process of splitting up long before officially filing for divorce on Dec. 20. King's father was the one who put in the official filing, citing "intolerable treatment."

The couple also ran into apparently serious issues back in 1992, before they were even married. King's mother filed for a restraining order against the father, claiming that he said he would kill both of them.

Interestingly, reports indicated that the two had already divided both their assets and their debt. If the division stands, that will certainly make the divorce process a bit faster.

King herself was recently married, changing her own name from Amy Duggar. She and her husband appear happy, as she shared a picture of an SUV he bought her for Christmas, along with some words about how much he meant to her.

Those who are getting divorced in Arkansas, whether it's a high-profile split or not, must be aware of their legal options.
