Eastwood and ex argue over spousal support and child custody

If you’re like most of our readers here in Alaska then you know that divorce can sometimes be an incredibly difficult process. This is especially true for high-asset and high net-worth couples because there is a lot more at stake than with a typical divorce. Now throw kids into the equation and you have one particularly contentious situation on your hands.

Residents here in Alaska can see this very scenario playing out right now for actor and director Clint Eastwood who is currently trying to come to a resolution with his own divorce. But complicating matters is a contentious child custody battle, which has recently forced Eastwood to play a little dirty himself.

According to some news sources, the actor filed legal documents recently, refusing his estranged wife spousal support. This could very well have been in retaliation to his soon-to-be ex-wife’s request for full physical custody of the couple’s 17-year-old daughter -- a request Eastwood has since countered with a request for joint physical custody.

But despite the contentions, Eastwood’s estranged wife told reporters that things are better now that the couple is separated and says that life is better for the kids because both parents are now happy. Only time will tell if this is the case, or if an amicable resolution can be met, in this high-asset divorce.

While some of our readers may see the situation above as typical Hollywood drama that only happens to celebrities then they might be surprised to learn they are wrong. Child custody battles and spousal support disputes can happen to any married couple here in Alaska or in any other state for that matter. But much like Eastwood and his estranged wife are learning, having knowledgeable legal representation on your side will help to make sure that things go as smoothly as possible and are in accordance with the law as well.
