Marcia Gay Harden has filed for divorce from her husband of 15 years, Thaddaeus Scheel. The couple have 3 minor children together. No further comment has been made aside from the recent filing.
From an Orange County divorce lawyer’s perspective, since the couple were married for 15 years, it is a marriage of long term duration. Unless spousal support is waived, the recipient of spousal support will be entitled to long term support or the court will retain jurisdiction over spousal support until remarriage, death or further order of court. In contrast, if this was a marriage of less than 10 years, the recipient of spousal support would be entitled to receive same for 1/2 of the length of the marriage.
The couple will also have to work out a reasonable child custody and visitation parenting plan for the children considering that there are three minor kids. Once a parenting plan is finalized, child support will need to be determined.
