'Orange Is the New Black' Star

Forget Separation ...

Let's Skip Right to the Divorce

"Orange Is the New Black" star Pablo Schreiber wants to rip off the band-aid -- demanding a straight up divorce ... after his estranged wife asked for a separation first.

TMZ broke the story ... Jessica Schreiber (a yoga instructor) filed for legal separation shortly before Christmas, citing irreconcilable differences. But Pablo -- who plays the corrupt drug-peddling corrections officer George Mendez on the show -- wants to skip the intermediary step.
 
It's gearing up to be an acrimonious split too --  as we reported, Jessica asked for full physical custody of their two sons (a 5-year-old and a 2-year-old).

Now Pablo -- Liev Schreiber's bro, btw -- is returning fire ... asking the court to block Jessica from getting spousal support. He also wants joint custody of their kids.

Interesting timing for Pablo to block a money grab -- Season 2 of OITNB is set to kick off shortly, which should mean more cash in his pockets.

Emphasis on his.

Some states don't even have the separation step, so what difference does it make? If you're ready to go, go.

He wants to protect his money?? How about she is divorcing now that he has no ey to get from him. I've been there. Men, no need to marry, if they love you, they don't need that ring... Trust me I had to learn the hard way
