Shannon Beador takes a luxury vacation during high asset divorce

Going through a divorce can be an emotional roller coaster for everyone involved, even if that person is a real housewife from Orange County. One California woman and her husband continue to duke it out over their high asset divorce details after 17 years of marriage. He footed the bill for a luxury family vacation in Mexico for his soon-to-be ex-wife and three daughters

Shannon Beador is one of the stars of the Real Housewives of Orange County. The family home and lifestyle is the backdrop for a peek into the lives of the rich and famous in upscale Orange County, California. She and entrepreneur husband, David, split in December 2017 amid rumors he had been unfaithful. Sources say the relationship had been in trouble for a long time before the affair.

The pair faced off again in a California court after David filed for joint custody of the couple’s three daughters. He claims their mom is not encouraging a solid and healthy relationship with him. David has been ordered to pay $12,000 for child support each month and $18,000 in spousal support to Shannon. He claims the high dollar amount will be a burden and destroy his company.

In high asset divorce cases, it usually falls on the courts to decide the terms of a financial settlement. When both parties have substantial income and assets, it may be in their best interest to consult with a seasoned divorce attorney to advocate for them. A lawyer who knows the legal system can represent his or her client and negotiate a fair financial agreement to satisfy everyone.
