Chris Rock’s ex-wife seeks large amount of $70M assets

Posted on Friday, June 19th, 2015 at 8:08 pm    

Chris Rock’s wife, Malaak Compton-Rock, is seeking a larger portion of her ex’s eight-figure assets to allow her to maintain the lifestyle she had as Rock’s wife, The Daily Mail reported on June 15.

As the ex-couple’s prenup expired, the two are reportedly in a financial battle over how much Compton-Rock should receive.

After getting married in 1996, Compton-Rock gave up her career and became a full-time mom for their two children, Lola Simone, 13, and Zahra, 11. The former couple has already agreed to share custody of the two kids.

Those who have relied on their partner’s income during marriage as they cared for the children are often the hardest hit in a divorce. The Cedar Rapids attorneys at Arenson & Maas, PLC, understand how important it is to secure a positive financial situation as you leave your marriage and look towards the future.

Chris Brown’s ex wants more in child support

Posted on Wednesday, June 10th, 2015 at 2:14 pm    

In March, Chris Brown has reportedly stopped supplying monthly child support for his daughter after his ex demanded higher payments, The Daily Mail reported on May 25.

Chris refused to pay child support after the mother of his child, Texas-based former model Nia Guzman, requested the payment be increased from $2,500 to $15,000. Nia and Chris have an 11-month-old daughter together named Royalty. The report also stated that lawyers have been preparing legal documents to petition for a new child support agreement and demand the lost payments.

In May 17, Chris Brown walked his daughter down the red carpet of the Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas.

Child custody issue to be addressed after White House petition

Posted on Thursday, May 21st, 2015 at 5:48 pm    

Gossip Girl and Melrose Place actress Kelly Rutherford has been successful in collecting 100,000 signatures in a White House petition to get her two kids back to the country, The Washington Post reported on May 13.

By hitting the 100,000 threshold, the Obama administration is warranted to review and respond to Rutherford’s child custody battle with her ex, German businessman Daniel Giersche. Her two kids, 8-year-old Hermes and 5-year-old Melrose, have been living with their father in France after a judge granted him custody in April 2012. Giersche’s visa was revoked after their split, meaning Rutherford bore the responsibility of traveling to see the children.

Child custody is a critical issue in divorce cases, as the agreed upon living arrangements will affect you and your children for years to come. This is why it is critical to enlist an experienced divorce attorney who fights on behalf of your rights and interests throughout every aspect of your case.
