Robyn Gibson's lawyer, disso-queen Laura Wasser, appeared before the judge this morning and announced Mel and Robyn have reached full agreement on the terms of their divorce ... in particular, the property settlement.

The lawyers are drafting the final paperwork and the judgment is expected to be entered at the end of August, making the divorce official.

Howdy Folks :)

Hiya :)
By the wording, it sounds like the official decree will happen in August. I'm reading it that Attorney Wasser was basically giving the judge a progress report and heads up to expect the final paperwork in August.

Sherman Oaks is owned by a trust company and was originally suppose to be held in trust for Lucia. I wonder if that still holds true?

BRORO: Why do men where their hair this short??? Sheer laziness?!?!

C'mon get real...it's what you prefer for the time your wearing the hairdo, decide what you want to mess with, what you choose is right for you at the moment & MOST of all...it's YOUR choice to be lived with. Choice of your own making usually BRORO, not anothers!

EVERY religion regards marriage as sacred. Catholics getting divorced is no worse than Jews, Methodists, Lutherans, whatever.

It's a sad and difficult thing no matter the faith of those involved.

@stephanie:
It stands for "dissolution queen". She is a divorce lawyer. She's handled many high profile cases. It is kind of an annoying nickname, though.

Good Morning Curious,

Well we asked for a new thread and here it is. Been busy on LASC web site. Found out some interesting things. For one - - Kolodny was substituted in as Mel's atty, only last November. Interesting, no?

LOL, I keep reading "disso queen" as "disco queen" and imagine Attorney Wasser bopping into court with the Bee Gees playing in the background.

"Kolodny was substituted in as Mel's atty, only last November."

Wrong.
He was already involved in the custody case by June 2010.

What? Really? I thought Attorney Kolodny was Mr. Mel's lawyer all along. I know he's made statements prior to November. Was he playing second chair maybe?

KEN this is an absolutely ignorant, hostile, and completely biased post. Religion has nothing to do with the others. You must have been raised as a moron...the apple doesn't fall far from the tree with you does it?

Go back school, read a book and get beyond your lower than 8th grade mentality. Oh and yes, do more for your OWN family if you have one, or will have one or if lost.

By the by, since you're over at the site anyways, is there any way to check if the June 23 proceeding went ahead as scheduled?

dang, that is sad. I really like the idea when these famous people actually can stay in a marriage. She has gone on to things and probably will work with Mel in different stuff. Unless she is like me and I like to get far away from the ex. lol

Yep Curious, Kolodny was substituted in November 17, 2010. Previous attorney was Robert Kaufman. Don't know if there's a connection between the two.

The other interesting thing I found out, is that the Petition for Dissolution and the Response were filed on the Same Day! So, this was well coordinated, and Mel knew it was coming.

Curious, No way to check on the 6/23 hearing. I have the case number, but it n e v e r comes up on the calendar because there is a minor involved.
