22 Apr Who Gets to Pay?
A heiress to the Walmart fortune is filing for divorce from her husband of 5 years. Paige Laurie Dubbert cites irreconcilable differences in her marriage to Patrick Bode Dubbert. However, the prenuptial signed by both parties stipulates that Mrs. Dubbert will possibly pay spousal support, which should make for an interesting divorce. In addition, Mrs. Dubbert has also filed a civil action alleging Mr. Dubbert channelled large sums of money from his business in Malibu.
In any divorce, often the most acrimonious discussions concern divisions of assets. With the very rich, the levels may rise, since there is more to argue about. And with all things being equal, either party may be liable for payment of support.
