Alimony dispute holding up divorce for NBA star Felton and wife

It is common for divorcing spouses in Sarasota, and elsewhere, to enter into divorce proceedings with an idea already in their heads about what they want and feel they are owed in terms of asset division and support awards. When couples are not able to reach an agreement on these, and other terms, it can hold up the entire divorce and settlement process.

According to reports, the divorce dispute between NBA player, Raymond Felton, and his wife of only 19 months remains ongoing. The two sides were reportedly unable to agree to a divorce settlement at a recent hearing. Along with a judge, lawyers for Felton and his soon to be ex-wife negotiated for more than three hours before stopping their talks for the day. The next hearing in the case has been set for July.

It was reported that the two sides are at odds over Mrs. Felton’s request for alimony. The New York Knicks’ guard purportedly contends that, according to their prenuptial agreement, his wife is not entitled to spousal support. She, however, reportedly maintains that the terms of their contract are no longer binding because he was unfaithful. It remains unknown to the public whether the couple’s agreement contained a specific fidelity clause, as well as if any other divorce issues are also impeding a settlement being reached.

If you are considering ending your marriage, or if your spouse has already taken steps towards a divorce, you may find it helpful to discuss your situation with an attorney to learn more about your rights and options. A lawyer will look out for your interests and can help ensure that your rights are upheld.
