Chris Rock’s ex wants larger divorce payout

The estranged wife of American comedian and actor Chris Rock, Malaak Compton-Rock, is seeking a larger divorce payout so she can maintain the same lifestyle she had when they were still together, The Daily Mail reported on June 15.

The 46-year-old mother is demanding a larger portion of the 50-year-old actor’s estimated $70 million fortune. Because of an expired prenuptial agreement, the two are likely to enter a legal fight over their family’s bank account.

The two wed in 1996. Malaak has since given up her career in public relations to look after their two kids, Lola Simone and Zahra.

Survey reveals more men are seeking alimony from ex-wives

A survey conducted by the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers among their 1,600 members revealed that 47% had observed a surge in the number of men receiving spousal support from their ex-wives, a report by Reuters published December 24 stated.

Matrimonial lawyers believe the change is brought about by a shift in the couple’s economic roles, where women are increasingly becoming primary household breadwinners while more men tend to stay at home.

Some experts also believe it is easier for divorced fathers with children to seek alimony from their ex-wives, although the number of men without kids receiving alimony has also been on the rise recently.

Understanding the intricacies behind alimony is difficult without the help of experienced lawyers. If you are dealing with divorce and alimony issues in Houston, seek help from the legal team of Holmes, Diggs & Sadler. Call us at (713) 802-1777 to find out how we can help.
