Adam Lanza's Parents

Divorce Shows No Evidence

Of Mental Health Problems

The divorce papers of Adam Lanza's parents reveal nothing that would indicate their son had mental issues.

TMZ has obtained the divorce docs between Peter and Nancy Lanza. The docs were filed in 2008 and the divorce became final the next year. 

One thing's for sure ... the family was financially well off. Peter agreed to pay Nancy $240,000 a year in spousal support for 2010. The yearly spousal support was to increase each year. In 2012 Nancy was to receive $289,800.

There is no mention or indication of any mental health issues involving Adam. There is a boilerplate reference, "The wife shall pay for unreimbursed medical, surgical, hospital, optical and psychiatric, psychological, and nursing expenses..." It continues, "Each parent shall be entitled to complete information from any physician, dentist, psychologist, consultant, or any specialist attending the children."

It's important to note ... the provisions (above) are standard and do not reflect specifically on this divorce.

And, in the docs, Peter agreed to buy Adam a car. Adam reportedly drove his mom's car to Sandy Hook Elementary school before going on his rampage.

Hey TMZ staff, why don't you go find out who the young man, or young woman was that made that beautiful cross (Grave marker?) Out of Legos. Now that's an absolute work of art with all the heart in the world put into it.

I call bull****! The family always says that there was nothing that he did that would be considered a... warning. If they did admit that they all knew he was a ticking time bomb, they would be crucified. I want to know the what his parents did to raise this evil monster. People aren't normal one minute and then snap.

Real n the field    

I knew he didnt have mental issues.
The media says that when "crazy white boys" do this kind of s*it, to down play it, and to make it appear he wasnt in his right mind...

he was in his right mind alright...he plotted it all out
very methodically!!

It is what it is...a spolied *ss white boy who's parents never put a belt to his pasty *ss when growing up!

That city crime rate is one of the lowest in the country, so tell me why are white folks always
taken up arms, and collecting so many guns?

What the heck are you so worried about?
felling guilty about something?

Let this be a lesson to all you white folks who dont discipline your bad *ss spoiled rotten kids.

running around kicking and screaming out in public, and all you give them is a "time out"....well i quess he got the last laugh, and gave his mom a permanent time out.

This woman was dumb as a door knob for exposing this alien looking wacko of a nut job to guns, so she "reaped what she sowed"

you let you your kids play this violent video games, teach them how to shoot, and then get surprised and look for answers when they haul off and commit crimes like this. Really

wake UP People.. Like the days of King Nebuchadnezzar, the writing is on the Wall!.
