The Finalized Divorce
We couldn’t define it differently, the separation between Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez finalized after eight years of legal battles. According to documents filed in the Los Angeles Court and cited by People magazine, the actress will have to pay the maintenance of her son Maceo, born nine years ago from the marriage with the French actor. An amount that amounts to 8,000 dollars a month. An important sum that includes all school expenses, from the uniform to the fee of the private school to the school supplies. Halle Berry also has the task of paying for her child’s extracurricular activities and reimbursing her ex-husband for expenses already incurred for the upcoming school year. The 8,000 dollars also include health insurance and uninsured medical expenses. As an “additional maintenance” she will pay 4.3% of any amount she receives over two million dollars.
To put an end to this long divorce, Halle Berry has agreed to pay a part of her ex-husband’s legal expenses. She has therefore deducted 55,000 dollars from her 90 million dollar patrimony in order to close this chapter of her life forever. Not only that. To put an end to this long divorce, Halle Berry has agreed to pay a part of her ex-husband’s legal expenses. Custody is assigned to both: both mother and father can be with Maceo for half a week and recover any lost time due to work commitments.
Financial Cost of Divorce
So, the divorce from Olivier Martinez was not painless for Halle Berry. At least from an economic point of view. The two decided to say goodbye in 2015 after only two years of marriage. But only now have they finally managed to find an agreement for the custody and maintenance of the child.
