Dennis Quaid

Files for Divorce

12/1/2012 6:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

1130-dennis-quaid-kimberly-gettyDennis Quaid has filed for divorce from his wife Kimberly, six weeks after she got the ball rolling by filing for separation.

In divorce docs filed yesterday in Los Angeles Superior Court, Quaid is seeking joint legal and physical custody of the couple's 4-year-old twins, Thomas and Zoe. He is also offering to pay spousal support.

Kimberly initially filed for divorce in March, but pulled the papers a month later.

As TMZ first reported, the couple could not officially file for divorce until now because they moved to California during the summer and the state requires a 6-month residency requirement before someone can file for divorce.

How many remember when Meg Ryan started banging Russell Crowe when she was still married to Quaid and Crowe turned around and dumped her like a bad cold?

Dennis Quaid has filed a complaint for divorce against his wife, Kimberly, and requesting jointly legal and physical custody of the parties’ four-year-old twins; Mr. Quaid also offered to pay spousal support. The couple could not legally file for divorce until recently due to the fact that they moved to California within the past six months. Like Virginia, California law requires that the plaintiff in a divorce action be a resident of the state for at least six months prior to filing a divorce action. Barring allegations that would lead to a contrary result, it is likely that the Quaids will share legal custody of their children, allowing both to make religious, medical, and educational decisions. Primary custody to one parent with visitation to the other or shared physical custody are both possibilities for a judge to consider or for the parties to determine.
