David Arquette has officially filed for divorce from Courteney Cox after considering it for several months; he cited irreconcilable differences a few days before what would have been their 13th wedding anniversary.

Although the couple has been separated since October 2010, the divorce papers listed the separation date as December 2011.  The couple openly discussed their marriage, stating that they tried couples therapy.  However, things went downhill quickly – Arquette started partying and ended up in rehab.

A few days ago Cox responded to Arquette’s papers – there is no mention of a prenup so the money they earned for the last 12+ years would become community property – split 50/50.  Reports indicate that Cox is worth approximately $75 million and Arquette is worth $18 million.

They are both asking for joint physical and legal custody of their 8-year old daughter.

Before entering into marriage, many people, especially celebrities, enter into a prenuptial agreement to protect their financial interests in the event of a divorce.  If you need an attorney to draft or review a prenuptial agreement, contact an experienced Riverside Family Law attorney who can protect your legal rights.
