Sweethearts Tarek and Christina El Moussa won America over on their popular HGTV show “Flip or Flop” as they remodeled one home per show as a couple. Unknown to many viewers, the couple was experiencing marital strife behind cameras. Some New York residents may be interested to learn that the couple recently finalized their divorce settlement.

In January 2017, Tarek filed for divorce from his wife Christina. The divorce filing followed reports of the couple’s earlier separation. Reportedly, the couple’s marriage came to a halt after an argument that resulted in police involvement. Details are not clear, but authorities reportedly removed weapons from the home following the incident. Christina took eight months to make an official legal response to Tarek’s divorce filing.

Their court papers simply list “irreconcilable differences” as their motive for divorce, but over the course of their separation, the couple has expressed that Christina’s trouble conceiving their second child and Tarek’s battles with cancer placed a significant strain on their relationship. Reportedly, the couple has agreed to both joint physical and legal custody of both of their children. The couple shares a daughter who is seven and a son who is two.

Like many couples, the El Moussas not only shared property, children and wealth, but they also shared a business. New York family law attorneys are equipped and experienced to handle complicated divorces such as the El Moussas’s. All couples are intertwined to an extent and most require the assistance of a family law attorney to help negotiate a fair divorce settlement.
