Wonder Years star, Danica McKellar has filed for divorce, according to TMZ.com. Danica and her husband, music composer, Mike Verta, were married on March 22, 2009 in San Diego. The date of separation was not revealed on TMZ. The couple have a one-year old son.
From an Orange County divorce lawyer’s perspective, because this marriage is a short term marriage of less than 10 years, the recipient of spousal support will only be entitled to receive same for 1/2 of the length of the marriage unless there is a prenuptial agreement in place. TMZ reports that there is a prenuptual agreement in place. Having a prenuptial agreement in place when you have substantial separate property assets is definitely a smart move.
Additionally, since the couple has a one year old son, they will have to come up with a reasonable parenting plan in their son’s best interest. This is why hiring a Santa Ana divorce lawyer skilled in child custody and visitation issues is imperative. Once child custody and visitation is finalized, the couple will need to work out a child support amount.
