It looks like the Orange County divorce between Kobe Bryant and Vanessa Bryant is well under way.
Perhaps even a divorce settlement has been reached. TMZ is reporting that the parties have already transferred home to each other. Kobe allegedly signed over his community property interest in the former family residence in Newport Coast to Vanessa along with a nearby mansion (where Vanessa’s mother has been living) over to her. In exchange, Vanessa signed over a community property interest in a third Newport Coast home (which is currently under construction) over to Kobe.
From an Orange County divorce lawyer’s perspective, we currently await the outcome of what type of settlement Vanessa will get. After all, the parties did not sign a prenuptual agreement. In addition to financial issues such as coming to a resolution relating to child support and spousal support, the parties will also have to deal with child custody and child visitation issues. If there are outstanding community property assets and debts that have to be resolved, the parties will have to deal with those issues as well.
At any rate, if you are contemplating filing for a Los Angeles County or Orange County divorce, contact an experienced and reputable Orange County divorce lawyer for more information.
