Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver are divorced — FINALLY! Rose Law Group Family Law Attorney Audra Petrolle on why it took so long

By Reuters

LOS ANGELES, Dec 29 (Reuters) – Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver have officially finalized their divorce, more than 10 years after proceedings began.

Court documents filed on Tuesday showed that a final settlement had been reached between the “Terminator” star and the U.S. journalist, formally ending their 35 year marriage.


“Divorce can be a long and taxing process especially where a high asset, potentially high conflict matter is involved. The best way to avoid a long, drawn out battle like the Schwarzenegger divorce is to be open to compromise, which means each party has to give up something in order to gain something.”
