West & Kardashian Settle Their Divorce
As of November 29th, the couple has finally settled their divorce. Kim Kardashian initially filed for divorce in February 2021, and as we have discussed in previous blogs, lawyer changes, disputes between the couple, and other complications lengthened the divorce process.
According to news outlets, the couple has received joint custody with equal access to their children. They share four kids under the age of 10 years old—North, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm.
In previous interviews, West has shared that the parents are struggling to co-parent with one another. He claimed he “had to fight” to have a voice in certain parenting decisions, including what their children wear and do. However, Kardashian claimed West was attacking her with falsities in interviews and online.
Kardashian believed that his online presence was adding stress to the divorce and children, and in November, sources claimed that West was sharing intimate photos of the star while working with Adidas, which caused more tension. Hopefully, the pair can move forward despite the initial tension. If you are getting divorced and plan to co-parent, we discussed co-parenting tips in our previous blog.
West will pay child support. Specifically, he must pay Kardashian $200,000 in child support, and he is responsible for half of the children’s educational and security expenses.
The couple did have a prenuptial agreement, which outlined how assets should be divided. The settlement did adhere to the terms outlined in their prenup, and in accordance with the agreement, neither party will receive spousal support.
Dating & Divorce
During their divorce, Kardashian filed to be declared legally single and began dating Pete Davidson. You may be wondering whether dating during your divorce is possible, and yes, you can date during your divorce. However, dating can complicate your case.
If you plan to date during your divorce, you should tell your attorney. Introducing a new partner can lead to issues with:
- your spouse’s willingness to negotiate and file uncontested,
- your relationship with your spouse and/or children,
- child custody and support matters, and
- the property division process (if the other party claims wasteful dissipation of assets occurred).
