Cobain ordered to pay spousal support during divorce

During separation proceedings, individuals may seek various terms when it comes to spousal support, property division or other related subjects. The circumstances of a divorce play a considerable role in how certain agreements may be drawn up, and individuals hoping for a certain outcome may wish to find out how to best work toward their goals. In some cases, the court may be required to make render decisions.

California residents may be interested in a divorce case involving Frances Bean Cobain, the daughter of late musician Kurt Cobain. Reports stated that Cobain filed for divorce after being married for less than two years. At the time of the report, her estranged husband had been ordered to leave their residence, but it was noted that he is seeking alimony from Cobain.

The couple were also ordered to attend mediation as a manner for working through their divorce proceedings. During divorce proceedings, Cobain is required to pay her husband $12,000 per month in spousal support over a four month period. Cobain was reported as being "open" to providing the support, but she is also concerned about protecting her father's immensely valuable estate. 

Spousal support can be a contentious point for divorcing individuals to address. In many instances, court rulings may have the final say in who must pay how much to whom. Therefore, California residents who are going through divorce may wish to find out more information on how they could work toward the support terms they wish to achieve. Speaking with experienced attorneys may be a useful step for interested individuals.
