New allegations come out in lobbyist's divorce filing

North Carolina residents may be interested in hearing about one power couple's divorce that is currently underway in Washington, D.C. Both individuals in the divorce are considered to be successful and colorful lobbyists. The parties were married for 11 years, and they collected a large amount of artwork during their time together. The man also had his own art collection from before marriage.

The male lobbyist owned several pieces of real estate, and the couple owned an apartment together in Venice, Italy. In the man's divorce filing with the D.C. Superior Court on April 3, the man alleged that his ex had changed the locks on the doors of their Venice apartment. The filing alleges other wrongdoings on the part of the man's ex, which include contacting prominent art museums to request that they refuse any artwork donations made by the woman's husband.

The man also claims that his wife indicated that she may be willing to get back together with him in order to entice him to pay a large sum on her new luxury home. The man later found out that his wife was already dating someone new when she suggested a possible reconciliation.

One other interesting point in the man's filing papers is hiss contention that he is largely responsible for his wife's ability to rake in millions of dollars annually as a lobbyist. The husband says that he taught his wife about the business and introduced her to important contacts. Individuals in North Carolina may not even be aware of all of their potential marital property interests. An attorney may help clients determine what they can ask for as a portion of the couple's joint property.
