Mel Gibson’s 93 year old father, John Hutton Gibson is seeking a divorce from his wife, Teddy Gibson. According to the Petition for Dissolution of Marriage, the parties married on January 6, 2002 and separated on May 28, 2012, a long term marriage of 10 years, 4 months.
Additionally, according to the Petition, John Hutton Gibson is requesting spousal support and that his attorney fees be paid to him by Teddy. He is requesting that property rights be determined and that the court terminate the ability to award spousal support to Teddy.
From an Orange County divorce lawyer’s perspective, in this case, since this was a marriage of long duration, the court will likely maintain jurisdiction over spousal support unless there is a waiver. Further, all community property assets and debts accumulated by the parties during the marriage will have to be dealt with.
