Every marriage in New York is different, and every couple handles conflict within their relationship in a different manner. Some couples would speculate that the instance of arrests, prison and separation would be the time that some spouses would seek separation or a divorce. For Jeremy Meeks, his wife reportedly supported him as he served a two-year prison sentence, but since his release, he has filed for a divorce.
The couple has become somewhat famous due to the husband's mug shot during an arrest in 2014. Apparently, people were impressed by Jeremy Meeks' looks, and his picture quickly went viral on the internet. Notwithstanding his criminal past, he has reportedly secured a modeling contract.
Despite his wife's apparent devotion throughout his time incarcerated, they have had a public and messy separation. Pictures of their separation are frequently publicized as Jeremy is often seen in public with his new girlfriend, Chloe Green, who is an heiress to the company TopShop. Jeremy filed for divorce in October, and his wife has since filed for alimony and child support for the 7-year-old child they share together. Her court filings do not request a specific financial contribution because she claims that she is not aware of her husband's current earnings. She has accused Jeremy of little participation in her son's life since the start of his new relationship.
Watch one's spouse in the media flaunt new relationships and expensive lifestyles can make for a painful and complicated divorce. Many people find that a New York family law attorney can assist them in understanding every aspect that needs to be considered as the proceedings move forward. The lawyer can also help focus the discussions on the best interests of any minor children involved, while advocating for the rights and concerns of the client.
