According to TMZ, Dan Cortese has filed for a Los Angeles County divorce from his wife, Dawn. The parties married back in 1994 and have two minor children together. Further, according to court documents, the couple put their Malibu home on the market back in June of this year.
From an Orange County divorce lawyer’s perspective, the parties here will have to deal with issues relating to spousal support, child support, child custody and child visitation.
Considering the parties were married back in 1994 and if their date of separation was sometime this year in 2011, this would be a marriage of long duration, which means the recipient spouse would be entitled to spousal support for more than 1/2 the length of the marriage and that the court would retain jurisdiction over same.
