Jesse James, Sandra Bullock Don't Get Support

4/28/2010 12:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jesse James and Sandra Bullock will truly be on their own after their divorce becomes final, because neither will be entitled to spousal support -- i.e., alimony.

0412-sandra-jesse-ex-tmz-getty-2

Several prominent Texas family lawyers tell TMZ ... in order to get "spousal maintenance" the couple must have been married for a minimum of 10 years.  Sandra and Jesse missed that mark by 5 years.

But there's this -- we're told if there is any community property to divide, the judge can consider "fault" and award less than half of the property to the guilty party.  But Sandra did not file her petition by claiming fault -- i.e., adultery.  Her petition is no-fault, claiming the marriage is irretrievably broken.  As such, community assets will be divided 50/50.  We do not know if the couple has a prenup.

As for how long the divorce will take ... much faster than California.  The minimum time is 60 days from the date of filing.

please    

That was a mistake to not file with fault, proving that would be an easy slam dunk for a first year rookie lawyer.
I am sure she was under emotional distress when she filed (who wouldn't be) but she needs to fix that.



She should not give the man millions of dollars and reward him for humiliating her and destroying her life anymore than she already has.

What attorneys are you calling? You're talking the long term, not "temporary" and your readers might be confused. See Familylawcourts.com

Go ahead Sandra, when you enter into a marriage or relationship the biggest betayal is embarrasing the person you have trusted with you darkest and lightest secrets, leave the scrub alone and if she done it I would say leave the skank alone, we hurt one another to easy in America if you want something else go and get but have the decency to leave the person. be good

I'm a crazy person...    

Good for her/them I guess...



California divorce law is an effing DISGRACE. Truly disgusting. I have a dear friend that raised the 4 kids of her husband; a guy content with doing nothing to better himself while passing over four different promotion opportunities at a massive grocery chain over the course of his 27 year employment. 27 years and he still only nets less than $4k a month. She's done well and is in the $170k a year range. 6 years of their 17 year marriage she's begged him for counseling. They were faced with losing their home and SHE got the second job. Now, HE'S filing for divorce from HER because she moved out. HE'S making HER pay for all the attorney fees AND asking for spousal support from a woman that has done everything for him and has a totally disabled grandson to raise. The court is granting his spousal support.



I am third generation native Californian and am telling everyone...NO NOT get married in California. This state has become a joke for a long list of reasons.



PS - No, she didn't cheat. She just couldn't take it anymore. The only thing she did wrong was stay married to the loser because of her moral convictions. And this is the price she pays...

Jessie you deserve to loose the best thing that ever happen to you. No Pitty Party for your Punk Ass. Sandra is hurting now but she will recover. Jessie maybe White Power will support you.

I am sure her homes are in HER name and Jesse has earned millions also. I think Sandra wants to leave the children in the house they shared. Jesse gave up rights to the baby and probably other things. Jesse wants her back. He also does not need her money.

Yeah, it will be over around August 1st. Texas is quick to grant divorces where the two parties agree to the terms.

And here I thought trying to save a marriage with a nazi-sympathizing porn-star lover was all the rage in Hollywood.
