Tiger Divorce -- Get it Done, Keep it Quiet

5/11/2010 6:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren are trying to strike agreements on child custody and division of assets ... and then quietly and quickly file divorce papers to end their marriage.

0510_tiger_elin_map_labels

Sources very familiar with the situation tell TMZ ... the most important thing for both Tiger and Elin is keeping the terms of the divorce confidential.  We're told Tiger has a team -- partly based in NYC -- that is working on the division of assets.  But ... as TMZ first told you ... the key player is West Palm Beach lawyer Thomas Sasser, an expert in child custody agreements that involve more than one jurisdiction.

Sources say one of the options is to actually file for divorce in Sweden -- Elin wants to move there with their two kids, Sam(2) and Charlie(15 months), and Tiger would have to submit to the jurisdiction of the court.  Wherever the divorce is filed, the plan is to keep the custody and property settlement agreements out of the court file.  We're told the quicker and quieter the divorce, the better.

The big issue, we're told -- Tiger wants either custody or visitation, and assurance that he can go into court and enforce the agreement if Elin violates it.  We're told Tiger wants the option to go to either a Swedish or American court to enforce the custody agreement.

And sources say ... the couple has not reached agreement on any of the major issues ... at least not yet.

Stay tuned...

After working for many years in the corporate world and being downsized 2 times in a span of less than 5 years I've got very clear for the fact that we work for others. A big portion of our life experience and happiness is dependent upon conditions and decisions that we have a absolutely no control over. So without knowing what I was going to be doing I made a firm promise to myself at that point, that I wasn't going to work for anyone else ever again. A short time after that this business opportunity ( http://snipurl.com/homebizopp1 ) came into my life, I took a look at it, it made sense and I realised it was exactly what I was looking for and also it was the answer to the promise that I have made to myself. This after living a life filled with needless meetings, presentations and business travel. I absolutely love this business, I love it's purpose and how it helps other people.

First the "story" talks about how the powerful and rich are making sure details are kept private and secret and then goes on to talk about what their "sources" are saying. What a load of manure. TMZ is fishing.

The only reason Tiger Woods Got Elin(and the bunch of low life bimbos) is becuase of his status as a celebrity. Money talks! Otherwise not that many women have had given him a second thought. I wouldn't touch him(money or not)with 100 foot pole... yaaaaaaaaaaaak!

I hate to see them Divorce, but they both look so miserable and there comes a time when you just have to admit that it's over. Wish him the best and her too. I said the other day I wish they could work out a good custody agreement and just put it behind them. Sounds like maybe now, Tiger can get over his injury to his neck and get back to where he needs to be on the Golf Course. Good Luck to Both

Ron Adams ^ youre such a wanker.
That's not what "Elin gets", that's what TIGER gets. If anyone received a lesson for not choosing within their race, it was him. HE'S the one with the talent, HE'S the one with the money & HE'S the one with everything to lose. Not some poor-as-a-church-mouse, diaper-changing Elin.



Also...gold-digger's come in all shapes, sizes & colors so GET REAL.

Let's see... admitted sex addict, prolific whore chaser, serial liar of global proportion. Why WOULDN'T he get custody? Visitation yes, but only under supervised conditions, and at the time,and location of the mother's choosing. As for conditions regarding the mother's breaking of visitation agreements, he is the only one in that relationship who does not live up to his word. Not in a position to demand anything!!

I thought that Tiger & Elin were going to get a divorce. I think Tiger shouldn't get married and just be like Hef and be a player and have more than one girlfriend just my opinion. I like Tiger he's a very good golfer.



Gonna Have My Say if you don't care then don't click the headline and ignore it that easy. And it's called Hollywood there are no weirdos in Hollywood as you have claim which is a lie. If you also think Entertainment is such a waste go to stuff that interest you and don't post on TMZ or entertainment it isn't going to go away as much as you want it to it isn't going to happen. So Your wrong Gonna Have My Say.

Glad to see Elin getting rid of the creep. I knew she would smarten up and not let idiots talk her into staying with that piece of brown dung. And ... for the record.. there is no such thing as sexual "addiction" ..... the guy is a low life S***.
