Yesterday it was announced that David Arquette filed for divorce from wife Courteney Cox after months of the couple being separated. Well now, it looks like Courteney Cox has responded to the divorce petition — without a lawyer.
TMZ reports that not only are Courteney’s papers not handled through a lawyer but there’s no mention of a prenuptial agreement either. The couple who has profited with joint projects and solo projects in their 12 1/2 year marriage plan to split their assets and earnings down the line 50/50.
This is a very significant fact considering Courteney’s pulled in a reported $75 million, which includes the huge bonuses the cast of F.R.I.E.N.D.S. received in their last five years on air, plus syndication earnings. However David, who comes from a long line of actors and actresses is estimated to be worth around $18 million.
As for their 8-year-old daughter Coco, like David, Courteney is asking for joint physical and legal custody. As for her last name which she’s used professionally as Cox-Arquette for years now, she’s asked that it be restored to its original name–Cox.
These papers from Courteney were filed on Friday, which is the same day that David filed. According to the documents it’s more than likely that the pair filed them together. For example neither have a lawyer and put “SELF” when asked who was representing.
Did you think David Arquette and Courteney Cox would last this long in their marriage?
