Maria Shriver-Arnold Schwarzenegger divorce: New details emerge

July 22, 2011 |  8:00 am


Former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger doesn't want to pay spousal support to Maria Shriver, his wife of 25 years, according to court papers filed this week.

Schwarzenegger has asked the court not to order him to pay. His request came in response to Shriver's divorce petition.

He also asked that attorney fees and legal costs be jointly paid.

Shriver, whose petition came weeks after her husband publicly acknowledged fathering a child with a longtime household staffer, had asked for support in her court filing.

She also asked that Schwarzenegger pay her lawyer fees.

They are seeking joint custody of their two minor children, Patrick, 17, and Christopher, 13.
