Some Ohio divorces settlements go smoothly but some do not. When the former partners cannot agree on child and spousal support, the division of debts and assets or other financial decisions, the court has to get involved in the finalization of the divorce. A former cast member of HBO’s comedy series Entourage, Kevin Dillon and his soon-to-be ex-wife, Jane Stuart are getting a divorce.
The two were married for 10 years before they decided to part ways in 2017. Stuart has made claims that Dillon does not make some of the payments he is supposed to make, especially for the children’s private school tuition. Dillon says he does not make as much since the show ended to make the payments the two had agreed upon earlier.
The judge issued a proposed decision for consideration by the parties. It calls for lower amounts Dillon has to pay for spousal and child support, as well as the tuition because Stuart was initially told to get a job, something she has failed to do. However, he does have to pay her an equalization amount of just over $1.7 million based on the values of the house in Malibu he is keeping as well as that of a vintage automobile. Their divorce will be final upon their acceptance with the court’s proposal.
A split filled with contention can make it hard for both parties to sit down and hammer out a divorce settlement with which they can both agree. It often takes a neutral party to assess the situation and make recommendations as to how to proceed. An experienced Ohio attorney can be that third party needed for a sensitive situation.
