Charlie Sheen’s Divorce Finalized?

charlie-sheen1916.jpgMaybe I was the only one who wasn’t aware that Charlie Sheen was still married while listening to recent accounts of his exploits with a house full of porn stars and a pile of cocaine that sent him into rehab last month. Then again, this is Florida and that’s California….I guess things are a little different in Jacksonville. California law says that a married couple cannot get divorced until at least six months after the divorce papers were filed. In other states the wait is longer. Nevertheless, Charlie Sheen’s divorce from Brooke Mueller is final.

According to news reports, Charlie Sheen will have to pay his ex $55,000 per month in child support and $750,000 in lump sum alimony. It is also reported that they will share custody of their twin sons who will be two years old next month. The couple had signed a prenuptial agreement prior to getting married. That is a good thing for Charlie Sheen who is reportedly the highest paid actor on television and makes upwards of one million dollars per episode acting on the popular show “Two And A Half Men”. Under California law, his wife would have been entitled to half of anything he made while they were married. Thanks to his prenuptial agreement she will only get a small portion of those earnings.

If you are thinking about getting a divorce in Florida or need a prenuptial agreement call a Florida Family Law Attorney.
