Court overturns approved $416M divorce of Galveston couple

A judge in Galveston, Texas ruled two years ago that Winnie Stacey Alwazzan should receive $416 million in her divorce from estranged husband Isa Alwazzan, a legal notice recently published in the Galveston Daily News showed.

The divorce was so quiet that there is a possibility that even Isa did not know of it, Winnie said. Isa has lived in the Kingdom of Bahrain for the past several years. In early 2016, Winnie’s attorneys tried to freeze almost $4 million from the proceeds of Isa’s family company, which is based in Bahrain. This move caused their divorce case to be dismissed this year, especially due to motions forwarded by Isa’s attorneys that Winnie had been court-shopping.

Cleveland Browns’ RG3 certain of divorce

Apparently, Robert Griffin III is absolutely positive his marriage is coming to an end. To illustrate how serious Griffin is about the divorce, Griffin has tattooed the name of his current flame, 23-year-old Estonian heptathlete Grete Sadeiko, on his arm.

In the divorce papers, Griffin said he wants his former spouse, Rebecca Liddicoat, to have full custody of their one-year-old daughter, but he already offered to pay child support. TMZ revealed from court documents they uncovered that the “marriage has become insupportable because of discord or conflict of personalities between petitioner and respondent that destroy the legitimate ends of the marriage relationship and prevents any reasonable expectation of reconciliation.”

Couples Who Divorce at a Later Age May Have More Financial Challenges

When a couple divorces during their golden years, it may be harder for them financially speaking. Here are some things to consider when navigating a divorce becomes a crucial part of your retirement.

You should hire legal professionals to determine the value of your assets and viable income streams. Also, one should consider moving out of the marital house, because moving to a smaller dwelling might actually be cheaper and a better option in the long run, Texas family law attorney Janice Green said.

One should also plan for retirement, especially since there are fewer years for earning money. Also, update contributions to retirement accounts and put more money into savings accounts. Healthcare should also be a priority and at the top of the list for people divorcing at a late age. Figure out how to pay for health insurance since a person with no health insurance can face problems later.

We have handled a wide variety of family law matters and can help you through issues such as child support, child custody, and divorce, among others.

Asset Division as Taught by the Brangelina Split

The Pitts – 41-year-old actress and humanitarian Angelina Jolie Pitt and 52-year-old actor and producer Brad Pitt – have an estimated net worth of $400 million. Jolie has an estimated net worth of $140 million and Pitt has an estimated net worth of $240 million, according to CNBC.

Division of their massive assets can prove complex. Jolie filed for divorce last Monday, September 19 in Los Angeles Superior Court in California from Pitt, citing irreconcilable differences and asking for full custody of their six children. Jolie is not asking for spousal support in her divorce filing.

Couples who take residence in several states can choose which residence they want to claim as their primary residence and which state they want to file for divorce. According to the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers President Joslin Davis,  picking one state over the other can make a big difference when it comes to gaining favorable ground in matters such as asset division.

Williamson County temporarily runs out of marriage licenses

Couples who want to tie the knot in Williamson County in Texas may find themselves postponing their plans for a little bit, because the Williamson County Clerk’s Office has temporarily run out of marriage licenses. It lost its supply on Friday, August 26 and won’t be getting new ones until Thursday, September 22, a report from the San Antonio Express showed.

County spokeswoman Connie Watson said she isn’t sure how many engaged individuals will be inconvenienced. Apparently, the issue occurred because the clerk’s office thought it had already ordered the forms from its vendor, who said they had not received the orders in question. Watson, however, said it is still possible to go to get married in any other county in Texas.
