Sarah Palin is heading to court for a divorce trial with estranged husband Todd Palin. According to The Blast, the Alaska politician will face off with Todd in front of a judge on April 6, 2020, for four days of divorce hearings.
Todd filed for divorce from Sarah in September on his 55th birthd`1ay – the two have been married for over 30 years. Todd said that the pair wanted to split because of an “incompatibility of temperament between the parties such that they find it impossible to live together as husband and wife.”
He is seeking joint custody of their son Trig, who is 11. Their other four children, Bristol, Willow, Piper and Track, are all over the age of 18.
Sarah filed a counterclaim shortly after receiving the divorce petition, claiming that Todd’s allegations aren’t true. So far, there have been no specifics about what caused the breach or what Sarah feels is an unfair depiction of her behavior since the couple has agreed to keep the case out of the public eye with sealed court papers, as The Inquisitr previously reported.
Sarah’s counter-filing means that the two disagree on the fundamentals of the divorce claim and, now, a judge will be brought in to mediate the separation.
Sarah is represented by Lori Colbert, a “high-powered Alaska attorney,” while Todd is represented by Kimberlee Colbo, who represented Dakota Meyer in his divorce from their son, Bristol Palin.
The pair married in 1988 when Todd was a fisherman. They came into the public eye after Sarah was tapped to run as Arizona Senator John McCain’s running mate in the 2008 election. She has stayed in the limelight as a right-leaning talking head championing various conservative issues. She also starred in her own reality show called Sarah Palin’s Alaska, which aired for eight episodes.

LET’S HEAR IT FOR JUSTICE ????????????????????. Palin v. NYT Congratulations to all Americans seeking to hold the press accountable! In my case against the NYT, the appellate court reversed the trial judge, vacated the judgment, and remanded it to proceed into discovery. This is great! It has taken a while, but we finally see some justice here. Special thanks to my attorneys who are stand-up, good people who won’t settle for anything but justice for the people. “This is—and has always been—a case about media accountability,” attorneys Kenneth Turkel and Elizabeth Locke said. “We look forward to starting discovery and ultimately proceeding to trial.” Media sure rubbed it in when it looked like my suit would go nowhere, but by the grace of God, great attorneys, and a right cause, we march on. Think media will cover today’s victory? – Sarah Palin
Most recently, Sarah got into a back-and-forth with Alyssa Milano after the actress and reality show host compared Donald Trump’s slogan to white supremacist groups, as The Inquisitr reported previously. Milano said that the red MAGA hat was akin to a white KKK hood.
“Alyssa, did you not know white hoods represented hatred for minorities and ‘handicapped’ children and adults whom the hooded KKK and white supremacists deemed unworthy of life?” Palin wrote. “So… from your warped Hollywood perch are you including MAGA-wearing moms of Native American kids (like mine) AND ‘different’ children (like mine) in your intolerant, prejudiced, gag-inducing rhetoric?”
At this point, it is estimated that Sarah is worth $12 million and Todd is reportedly seeking half of their assets.
