Dennis Quaid Divorce

Dennis filed for divorce, ending his 8-year-long on-again/off-again marriage to Kimberly Buffington.

Kimberly Buffington first filed for divorce from estranged husband Dennis Quaid in March 2012. Ironically, she withdrew the petition, only to file for legal separation in October. However, Dennis made the final move by filing for divorce on Nov. 30.

Let the Spousal Support & Custody Battle Begin

Dennis, 57, reportedly requested joint custody of the couple’s twin sons, Thomas and Zoe, both 4, and has offered to pay Kimberly spousal support, according to Radar Online.

Apparently, the couple could not officially divorce until now, because they moved to California over the summer, and the state requires a 6-month residency before someone can file for divorce — according to TMZ.

This will be Dennis’ third failed marriage.

Dennis Quaid has filed a complaint for divorce against his wife, Kimberly, and requesting jointly legal and physical custody of the parties’ four-year-old twins; Mr. Quaid also offered to pay spousal support. The couple could not legally file for divorce until recently due to the fact that they moved to California within the past six months. Like Virginia, California law requires that the plaintiff in a divorce action be a resident of the state for at least six months prior to filing a divorce action. Barring allegations that would lead to a contrary result, it is likely that the Quaids will share legal custody of their children, allowing both to make religious, medical, and educational decisions. Primary custody to one parent with visitation to the other or shared physical custody are both possibilities for a judge to consider or for the parties to determine.
