Maria Shriver -- Divorce On!

5/26/2011 2:27 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Maria Shriver met with her divorce lawyer today in Beverly Hills and all systems are go to end her marriage to Arnold Schwarzenegger ... TMZ has learned.

Shriver met with attorney Laura Wasser at the swanky Montage Hotel in Beverly Hills -- where Shriver is staying -- for a morning meeting.

Meanwhile, we're told Schwarzenegger has met with another high-powered Bev Hills divorce lawyer of his own, Bob Kaufman.  Although we do not know if Arnold has formally retained Kaufman.

As TMZ first reported, Shriver has been meeting with her financial person for several months now trying to sort out money issues before filing the divorce petition.

It's a little tricky, because the money guy works for both Maria and Arnold and is very close to both of them.

A Wasser/Kaufman combo is significant, because both have worked on other high profile cases and have figured out how to handle these situations in a discreet, semi-private manner. 

Although no divorce petition has been filed -- were told it's just a matter of time.

UPDATE, July 1, 2011: Maria Shriver filed for divorce against Arnold...

Why is TMZ posting such terrible pics of Maria? You seem almost pro Arnold. Which is pretty disgusting. And PS: I am happy the POS is finally going down. Too bad this didn't come out when he was pulling a coup on the democratically elected governor of California.

Arnie's PR people are out in full force.
Maria looks nice for a fifty three year old mother of four. She is very attractive with great hair. Just because she doesn't feel the need to get botox, fake boobs, facelifts, juvaderm doesn't mean she is unnatractive. I like her natural look.

I hope Maria gets half.

@Lilac Actually I am moral and try to be saint like in my choices, particularly when they affect other people.

As someone said it takes a sociopath to do what Patty Mildred and Arnie did. Frankly her more because she was screwing around when she should have been working unless her job description was changed to PROSTITUTE.

Frankly the reason she should get half is to make sure it goes to HER children and not the children of a future spouse.

Would be excellent if Maria had some cosmetic work done after the divorce just to show that tom cat that he cannot have or destroy everything.

Terminator is getting terminated...
Arnold is one of the WORST actors EVER,
and if Hollywood would PERMANENTLY

better place for all!

This should be a lesson for everyone interviewing prospective a housekeeper and/or nanny. Steer clear of hispanics!

I believe Maria knew for a long time that her hubby was a womanizer. What took her so long to make a move? I find it interesting that all this is coming out now, after he's out of office. You can't settle a man down that has an eye for the ladies. Its best to move on alone....

I truly, truly hope that the aberration call Mildred and Arnold find a hole were to crawl in once life catches up with them.
See the pictures of betrayal...
