In response to Maria Shriver’s divorce filing, Arnold Schwarzenegger is denying his ex-wife’s request for spousal support.
Arnold’s lawyer, Bob Kaufman, filed the papers Wednesday in Los Angeles, asking the judge to reject Shriver’s right to receive any spousal support.
Schwarzenegger also requests that all of his “earnings and accumulations” from and after their separation be made separate, as well as his “miscellaneous personal affects.”
Since the former couple had no prenuptial agreement, under California law Arnold and Maria are entitled to a 50/50 split of all earnings and assets accumulated during their marriage.
The couple’s worth is estimated to be around $ 400 million.
The second issue is that Maria is asking Arnold to pay for her attorney’s fees. Arnold’s response is that each pays his own lawyer.
According to the papers, the former governor and his estranged wife are seeking joint custody of their two minor children Patrick, 17, and Christopher, 13.
