Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom divorce

TV reality star Khloe Kardashian and former NBA player Lamar Odom’s divorce was officially finalized on December 12 by a Los Angeles judge and will be effective on December 17.

Kardashian first sought to end her marriage with Odom in December 2013. She later withdrew the divorce and reconciled with Odom because he reportedly suffered from a certain medical condition. Several months since their reconciliation, Kardashian refiled a divorce petition citing irreconcilable differences. The couple has no children despite being together for over four years. The court decision says neither Kardashian nor Odom will receive spousal support. The couple’s company, Khlomar, will also be dissolved once the judgment takes effect this week.

Mediation in Divorce Cases

Mediation is a process during which both parties undergoing the divorce and their attorneys meet with a mediator who is knowledgeable about law and the art of negotiation to see if they can draw an agreement out of the feuding parties. Everything that is said is confidential at mediation, and the mediator can never be forced to come to court to testify.

One of the roles of a mediator is to get the parties to look at the downsides of their cases and to consider the benefits of settling.  If the case is settled at mediation, the mediated settlement agreement cannot be changed after the fact. An Order will be prepared outlining the terms of the settlement and submitted to the Court, which usually takes about two weeks. Your case is officially over after the Final Order is signed by the Judge. If the case is not settled at mediation, the mediator can write the Court a letter saying “I mediated this case and it did not settle.”

The Houston divorce lawyers of Holmes, Diggs & Sadler are committed to helping couples reach a successful divorce agreement that is as fair to both sides as possible. If you or someone you know is considering mediated divorce, contact us at (713) 802-1777.


Billionaire Cohen won divorce lawsuit

On May 19, a Manhattan judge dismissed the fraudulent divorce lawsuit against billionaire Steven Cohen due to a lack of evidence that he had cheated his estranged spouse Patricia out of millions, a report of CNBC stated.

According to reports, Patricia alleged that Cohen committed fraud in a 1990 divorce case by concealing millions of dollars. Patricia is pursuing to get 50 percent of the supposedly hidden $5.5 million with interest. However, Manhattan federal court Chief Judge Loretta Preska ruled there was insufficient evidence presented in court to support Patricia’s claims.

The legal team representing Patricia stated they disagree with the decision and are considering appealing the case.
