Gibson’s Divorce Settlement to Be Most Expensive in Hollywood History

By Sheryl Rentz on May 8, 2009

Mel Gibson’s wife of nearly 30 years – Robyn Gibson – has filed for divorce, according to a recent news report. Gibson cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the split from the 53-year-old Gibson. The couple has had seven children since their marriage in 1980. Any divorce settlement in their case would be the most expensive in Hollywood history. Gibson’s assets are estimated at around $900 million. California law states that community property and earnings shall be divided 50/50 in divorce cases where there is no prenuptial agreement in place.

Be it a celebrity who has millions or billions in assets or an average individual, divorce proceedings are never easy. No matter who you are, divorce is complicated because of the emotions and the people involved. There are usually children involved as well, which makes it even more contentious and emotional.

Some divorces could end without a trial, but many divorce proceedings involve extensive and rigorous negotiations including those involving financial issues. It is impossible to negotiate such issues without a qualified and experienced Philadelphia divorce lawyer on your side, fighting for your rights and giving you comprehensive information every step of the way.
