Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin Finalize Divorce, Finally “Uncoupled”

July 21, 2016

Hollywood superstar Gwyneth Paltrow and her famous musician husband Chris Martin have finally completed their divorce proceedings and made their divorce official. Paltrow, the 43-year-old Oscar winner, and Martin, the 39-year-old lead singer of Coldplay, were married for more than a decade.

The finalization of the Hollywood power couple’s divorce took more than two years. In fact, it was in March 2014 that Paltrow and Martin legally separated and famously announced that they were “consciously uncoupling.” Since getting divorced, the couple has remained friends and even took family vacations together. That may have made the entire divorce process a bit less stressful for the couple.

The divorce settlement was reached in May, but it took several months for the details to be worked out. Now the divorce has been made official after a judgement was entered into a Los Angeles County divorce court.

There were a number of thorny issues in the Paltrow-Martin divorce, including child support and child custody. The ex-couple has two children, 12-year-old Apple and 10-year-old Moses. The couple’s divorce settlement reportedly includes an agreement for joint custody of their kids and sets forth terms for child support payments. Paltrow and Martin reportedly prioritized their children throughout the divorce process and wanted to ensure that their co-parenting went smoothly. In fact, Paltrow has previously said that the former couple’s “values are very much around the importance of family and the importance of those relationships.”

Additionally, it does not appear that there were any major disputes over financial issues, as Paltrow and Martin reportedly agreed to forego spousal support in either direction.

Client Reviews
I was living a nightmare of being falsely accused in a judicial system that considers all fathers to be dead beat dads until proven innocent. Living out of state and facing the possibility of jail, I miraculously found Jon’s website and called his office. Within a week the tables were turned, the lies were exposed, and the harassment was stopped. If you need someone that will challenge the system, then you need Jonathan Katz. Greg Weaver
Jon’s integrity towards his clients is what makes him a standout attorney. He makes it a priority to know what's important to you. You’re not just a number. He is upfront with you right from the start. He will not string you along just for his financial benefit. He is only willing to settle the case if that's truly what you want. Anytime I called him I received a call back from him that day. Not someone else in the office. He is an attorney that has a passion for what's important to his clients. John Morrissey
Being a single mom, I had enough stress in my life. I had no idea how to go about protecting myself. My daughters were my priority. Jon walked me through the process. He turned a difficult time into a workable solution. Diane Chiriani
Jon thinks well, works to be clear and honest. He works to get to a strong argument. He seems to have a good working relationship with everybody at the courthouse. I get the feeling he has no trouble thinking like a judge. He is friendly and courteous. He doesn't overbill. He takes and returns calls promptly. His legal staff is friendly and competent. What's not to like? Rick S.
I liked that there was always transparency throughout my case. Genevieve H.
