San Jose Divorce Lawyer Discusses Actor/Singer Tyrese’s Divorce Woes Mount
Tyrese has been in the news a lot lately. The parties were married a mere 10 months, before filing for divorce. The parties had signed a pre-nuptial agreement limiting the terms of support and property division. Apparently, the wife recently filed seeking a modification not only of support, but also of custody and visitation, and attorney fees.

Tyrese has an annual income that undoubtedly puts him in the high earner bracket. California law requires both parents to support their children. Child support is calculated using a formula that considers the incomes of both parties, as well as the timeshare. Typically, this formula results in a number which becomes the child support amount. Sometimes, courts will adjust the number either up or down to reflect additional expenses, or for some other reason. The Court has to consider the lifestyle of a high earning parent, and order support in an amount to enable that child to share in his or her parent’s lifestyle. Recent reports indicate support in the range of $6,000 – $7,000/month was ordered.

Additionally, it appears that the wife is contesting the prenuptial agreement. The agreement allegedly has a provision in it that for every year of marriage, the wife would receive $50,000 lump sum. Unfortunately, since the marriage lasted a mere 10 months, the terms imply the wife will receive nothing. She is now claiming she was essentially coerced into signing the prenuptial agreement.

According to California law, a prenuptial agreement is considered involuntary unless the party against whom it is asserted was represented by independent counsel or expressly waived, in writing, such representation had at least 7 calendar days to review prior to signing; and there must have been full disclosure of all assets and obligation.
