Duchovny and Leoni split finalized; Leoni gains spousal support

If you're interested in celebrity news, then you might have heard about the finalization of the divorce of David Duchovny and Tea Leoni. An Aug. 9 report stated that the pair officially split up around three years ago, but Duchovny only filed for divorce in June 2014. Now, that divorce has been finalized in the courts, leaving the two to go their separate ways.

The couple has two children that they've had to provide for in their marriage and now through their divorce. They will allegedly share joint legal custody, but Leoni will be the primary custodian of the children; this could be due to Duchovny's addictive past or due to his workload on "Californication."

The divorce did result in spousal support payments for Leoni; she will receive $40,000 each month on top of $8,333 per month for child support for the two children. The child support won't have to cover everything the children need, though. Duchovny has reportedly said he will cover extra expenses as well, including the children's summer camps, college and private schooling.

The two had been married since 1997, but they initially broke up in 2008. It was then when Duchovny had sought help for sex addiction. After that, the pair did reconcile, but they again split up in 2011, leading to their divorce.

Getting a divorce can be a difficult and emotional time for everyone involved. If you have children, splitting up your time with them can be devastating. Fortunately, with legal help in Massachusetts, you can make sure you get the visitation you need. You can also focus on obtaining child support or spousal support that you need to transition to a new life.
