After widespread media reports in California and across the country, Donald Trump Jr. and Vanessa Trump confirmed that their divorce had been finalized after pending for a year. In a joint statement released on Feb. 22, the former spouses said that after 13 years of marriage, their divorce had been made official. They also said that they were committed to working together to co-parent their five children.

They said that the agreement for their divorce had been finalized before the end of 2018 with a New York state court and that all legal issues had been resolved. They had been married since 2005, and their children are aged 11, 10, 7, 6 and 4. Initially, the Trumps had announced their separation and divorce in March 2018 although they had already been separated before making the public announcement. They said that they had delayed making their separation known in the interests of their children.

Trump Jr. is the son of Donald Trump, known before his election as a real estate mogul and the host of several “Apprentice” television reality shows. After the pair announced their plans to divorce, reports repeatedly indicated that Trump Jr. had pursued an extramarital affair with a singer and musician featured on “Celebrity Apprentice” in 2012. According to media reports, the affair ended but eventually led to the divorce; however, neither party has confirmed the truth of these stories.

High-profile divorces like this one often involve significant assets, including real estate, investment accounts and retirement funds. People who are considering divorce may work with a family law attorney to negotiate a fair settlement on a range of issues, including property division, spousal support and other divorce legal matters.
