One Thing Courteney Cox Wants In Divorce
One Thing Courteney Cox Wants In Divorce, The actress’s legal filing differs from soon-to-be-ex-husband David Arquette’s in only one way. There have been some nasty Hollywood divorces, but don’t expect David Arquette and Courteney Cox Arquette’s to be one of them.When David, 40, filed for divorce from Courteney, 47, last Friday in Los Angeles, the “Cougar Town” star did the same thing — only it took an additional day for her papers to be discovered. In her legal filing, Courteney lists the same reason for their split (“irreconcilable differences”) and also asks for joint physical and legal custody of their daughter Coco, who turned 8 on Wednesday.
There is speculation that the amicable exes actually filled out their paperwork together as they both note that they are representing themselves, without lawyers, in the divorce. However, David’s papers were dated March 23, 2012 while Courteney’s had Friday’s date, June 8. Also of note in both filings, they list their separation date as December 31, 2011 – although they announced what they called a “trial separation” back in October 2010.
Courteney’s filing had an additional request that her name be restored to Courteney Cox, dropping the Arquette.
The odd couple fell in love on the set of “Scream” and married three years later in June 1999. During their marriage they were open about their differences with Courteney telling InStyle: “We’ve done couples therapy in the past. We’re not lazy about our marriage. We have the same arguments we’ve had for years.”
