Divorce terms spelled out for Real Housewives couple

It is sad when a Pennsylvania marriage ends, especially when it seems to everyone around that all is well. Thanks to gossip columnists of old, and social media in the present, speculations as well as actual reasons for divorce are spread far and wide. Another couple in the Real Housewives franchise has chosen to divorce, and both spouses claim there has not been any inappropriate act by the other that initiated the process.

Jim and Alexis Bellino from the Orange County location have already received an order from the court pertaining to spousal and child support. They were married for 13 years and have three children together. Although Bellino was expecting to receive spousal support from his ex-wife, the court disagreed. Not only will he be paying $6,000 each month in child support, she receives a monthly sum of $10,000 in spousal support.

The parents will share both physical and legal custody of the children with daily, unsupervised phone interaction from the non-custodial parent. It was also communicated to them both to not criticize the other when the children were present. They maintain they will continue to respect each other, and they ask that their family, friends and fans allow them their privacy as they move forward.

Divorce is hard enough without being in the public eye, but, like celebrities, many Pennsylvania spouses also have friends and acquaintances who speculate and spread rumors, adding fuel to an extremely emotional fire. It can be hard to focus on making sure the terms of the divorce are satisfactory for now and in the foreseeable future. An attorney who has worked with numerous clients going through the divorce process can keep the emphasis on what is important, giving much-needed peace of mind.
