After announcing their separation months ago, David Arquette has finally filed the Petition for dissolution of marriage from Courteney Cox Arquette. In the court documents filed in the Los Angeles Superior Court, Arquette is requesting joint legal and joint physical custody of the parties’ daughter, Coco. He is also requesting that property rights be determined.
From an Orange County divorce lawyer’s perspective, interestingly, there is no mention on how he would like relief for child support or spousal support. Additionally, according to the petition, the parties were married for a long term marriage of 12 years, 6 months so if Arquette would to request spousal support from Cox, he would be entitled to same indefinitely unless of course, they agreed to a different amount, time period or waive it completely.
Most likely the big issue here is how the couple will share joint physical custody of their daughter, Coco.
