A mother active in the Occupy Wall Street protest movement has divorced her former husband, a banker after 19 years of marriage. As part of the divorce settlement, she has surrendered child custody of the couple's four children to her former spouse and received a cash settlement of $85,385. The Occupy Wall Street movement, which began on Wall Street, has grown and stretched from coast to coast, including California, and even to other countries.
People have been very interested in the details of the divorce settlement between Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise. The former couple created a media frenzy when Holmes filed for divorce earlier this year. After a very quick resolution, people were very curious as to the details of their settlement.
When a couple decides to divorce, there are obvious financial implications for both parties. When California couples try to decide how to divvy up assets, a lot depend on how a couple maintained their finances during the marriage and who had more control and oversight into what income was coming in and out. This is especially true if either spouse tries to hide assets.
