Dwayne Wade's Divorce Saga Finally Over

Posted on in Divorce
According to a recent report by the Huffington Post, Dwayne Wade's six-year divorce saga has finally ended in a settlement. Wade married his high school sweetheart, Siohvaughn Funches, in 2002 and Wade initially filed for divorce in 2007. TheresaSome people would say that Funches did everything that she could do to make Wade look bad, and most of her efforts backfired. At one point, she made allegations that she was homeless even though Wade had been providing her with over $25,000.00 in income on a monthly basis. On top of that, he has been paying the mortgage for the home that they used to share along with the maintenance of the home and the security. He also left four motor vehicles with her. He has picked up the fees for all 16 attorneys that she has gone through over the years. Despite the heated battle and her attempts to sully his name, Wade was awarded sole custody of both of their children in 2011. In the settlement, Wade will pay Funches a lump sum of $5 million and she will be allowed to keep the mansion and all four vehicles. Because of the controversial nature of their divorce, there was also a non-disparage agreement signed by the both of them stating that neither one of them is permitted to publicly say anything bad about the other. Funches filed a lawsuit against Wade, alleging that he failed to pay her from the endorsements deals based on an agreement that was established in 2008. The judge dismissed the motion on that case. Emotions will be high when it comes to divorce. Whether you are not dealing with the millions of dollars and assets that were at stake in this case or not, you can still use the assistance of an experienced Illinois family law attorney in your divorce.
