Sandra Bullock Adds Legal Firepower to Divorce

5/5/2010 10:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has obtained new legal documents showing that Sandra Bullock is bolstering her legal team -- and going out of state to do it.

According to docs, Joseph Kibre, a California family law expert, has filed a motion with the Texas judge handling Bullock's divorce asking for permission to work on the case.  Judges typically allow out-of-state lawyers to participate on a case-by-case basis.

It's interesting Sandra wants a California lawyer involved.  Kibre has handled the Clint Eastwood/Sondra Locke palimony case and the case brought by Mohamed Al Fayed against a group of individuals who allegedly tried to sell him forged government docs involving the deaths of Princess Diana and Dodi Fayed.

And another lawyer -- Edward Howell Crosby is asking for similar permission to join Sandra's legal team.  Crosby -- a Louisiana lawyer -- works for the law firm that is handling Bullock's case.  The firm has offices in New Orleans, Baton Rouge and Houston.

Crosby is also the lawyer who handled Bullock's tax problems in 2004.

She may not know how to pick a good man, but Bullock sure knows how to get rid of him and keep him out of her life. She will make it look like he never existed.

She is my new heroine...wonder if she gives lessons. :)

Why is this a story? Every state has different divorce laws and different property laws (personal or real property). It's wise for all concerned for her to have an attorney in each state that she has homes/property, to make sure all the "T's" are crossed and the "i's" are dotted. Smart!

I'm so UNIMPRESSED with this phony, Sandra Bullock, who was so stupid not to know her own hubby is a Nazi.
She's a liar, stupid and not even a good actress or a naturally pretty woman with her nose job, etc..

Everytime I read these on going stories, I can't help but hope that it is a front for the adoption and that they will still get back together. With the fall out from his affairs I believe he would not do this again and he could still be a Dad to Louis and a good one that Sandra herself said.

I'm guessing it's because the 'adopt a kid foundation' produces only mediocre lawyers :)
