Maryland residents who watch the show "The Talk" may be interested to learn that, on May 19, co-host Aisha Tyler agreed to pay her ex-husband $2 million. Tyler said that she her former husband had agreed to the terms of the divorce settlement and that she had not been ordered by the judge to pay spousal support.
Tyler and her former husband were married in mid-1994 after being together in high school. They separated in early January 2015. He filed for divorce in April 2016, citing irreconcilable differences. Although he did not ask for spousal support when he filed for divorce, he did reserve the right to do so later on. As part of the divorce agreement, Tyler and her former husband agreed to split all of their assets, including the profits from the home that will be sold.
Tyler had agreed to pay her former husband, a lawyer who has two successful law firms, $500,000 to equalize the worth of their divided property. The remaining $1.5 million will reportedly be paid in installments. Tyler's two companies and her ex-husband's law firms were not factored into the divorce settlement.
Going through a high asset divorce can be particularly complex especially if the former couple has been married for decades and obtained most of their assets during the course of their marriage. If a couple is having trouble dividing up their marital property, a divorce attorney may represent a former spouse while working towards a settlement that both parties can agree to.
