Hollywood Actress Nicollette Sheridan Files for Divorce, Seeks to End “Secret” Marriage

Hollywood star Nicollette Sheridan had a “secret” marriage that now appears to be headed for divorce.

Sheridan reportedly married Aaron Phypers in December 2015 and then legally separated from him on June 19, 2016. Less than one month later, Sheridan formally filed divorce papers in a Los Angeles court.

Depending on the circumstances surrounding the divorce, things could potentially get very messy for the actress. The 52-year-old Sheridan, who is perhaps best known for having played one of the main characters on the popular television show “Desperate Housewives,” reportedly has a considerable net worth that could be at stake in the divorce.

Remarkably, the marriage involving the Hollywood actress and her boyfriend was kept a secret until now. Sheridan and Phypers began dating in December 2014, but there was never any public indication or media reporting to confirm that they got married.

Since Sheridan and Phypers did not have any children together, there will not be any issues surrounding child support or child custody. However, it is very possible that the estranged couple’s divorce will still be combative because it involves a high net worth. Moreover, sources indicate that the couple might not have signed a prenuptial agreement in advance of the marriage, which would mean that certain financial issues could become contentious if the divorce proceedings drag on.

When filing for divorce in the Los Angeles family court, Sheridan requested that the court immediately terminate any granting of alimony to Phypers. It is unclear if Phypers is contesting this request and asking for spousal support.

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.
