Chris Rock’s estranged wife seeking large amount of $70M fortune

The ex-wife of 50-year-old comedian and actor Chris Rock is seeking a large divorce payout to allow her to continue living the lifestyle she enjoyed as his wife, according to a report by The Daily Mail on June 15.

After marrying Rock in 1996, Malaak Compton-Rock gave up her career in public relations and became a full-time mom to their two children, 13-year-old Lola Simone and 11-year-old Zahra. As their prenup is set to expire after twenty years of marriage, the 46-year-old mother is reportedly seeking a larger portion of the comedian’s estimated $70 million assets.

Apart from being a full-time mom, Malaak is involved in many charitable endeavors and heads a charity group called The Angel Rock Project.

Actress Hilary Duff in child custody battle with NHL’s Mike Comrie

After a long bout of separation and speculation on whether or not Hilary Duff and ex-hockey star Mike Comrie would ever get back together, the couple finally decided on divorce as the best option.

Comrie and Duff both acknowledge the existence of a prenuptial agreement that will make sorting out property and financial issues much easier, but deciding on a custody agreement for their 3-year-old son, Luca, might be more of a challenge, TMZ reported on April 22.

When Duff filed for divorce back in February, she petitioned for primary physical custody of their son, requesting that Comrie’s access be limited to visitation rights. According to sources connected with the actress, she is concerned about Comrie’s partying lifestyle interfering with his abilities as a parent. However, Comrie isn’t going to give in without a fight and responded to Duff’s divorce petition by demanding joint custody.

Contention over child custody is often one of the most difficult and complicated aspects of a divorce, but the lawyers at the Law Office of Andrew A. Bestafka, Esq., are knowledgeable about family law, understand the emotional complexity and high stakes of child custody issues, and are prepared to help.

Are there benefits to a prenuptial agreement?

A prenuptial agreement is a legally binding document that is created prior to a marriage; it outlines how, if a couple decides to end its marriage, the couple will divide its assets and properties. Every prenuptial agreement is highly specific, and many couples include individualized situations that may arise in the future to protect themselves financially.

Some wonder if a prenuptial agreement is worth it. Every couple will have to decide for itself if such an agreement benefits the couple. However, those marriages that involve significant property assets and money might benefit from the financial protection offered by a prenuptial agreement. A prenuptial agreement offers legal protection for both individuals who are entering into a marriage.

The best way to know if a pre-nuptial agreement is right for you is to speak with an attorney about your situation. An experienced Monmouth County divorce attorney will have the experience you need to learn more about how a prenuptial agreement works and how it might affect your future. Fortunately, the attorneys of the Law Office of Andrew A. Bestafka, Esq., can help with this issue.
