Meagan Good and DeVon Franklin Reach Divorce Settlement
According to Radar Online, the Harlem star, and her soon-to-be ex-husband, Franklin are one step closer to being divorced. The settlement between the two former lovebirds states that neither will pay spousal support.
Based on the court documents obtained by Radar, Franklin made a request to the judge who is presiding over the divorce case to grant him a default judgment as Good has not shown up to court.
The preacher told the judge that his former wife agreed to let him take care of the paperwork. In the paperwork filed, he states the two of them negotiated a deal regarding the division of their property and assets.
They both agreed that they terminated the right to request spousal support and Meagan’s former name will be restored.
After filing for divorce, Franklin handed over all his financial information to Good. The actress never bothered hiring an attorney nor has she filed anything on her behalf regarding the separation.
Franklin is asking the judge to finalize the divorce without Good appearing before the court. He also states that “the issues subject to disposition by the court in this proceeding are the subject of a written agreement.”
In his filings, he also states there are no issues of child, spousal, or partner support and he is not asking for any money, property, costs, or attorney fees from the Prodigal Son actress.
The judge has yet to sign off on the dissolution.
The couple who met on the set of the 2011 film Jumping the Broom, took their relationship to another level when they got engaged in May 2012 and then eventually got married in June 2012.
“After much prayer and consideration, we have decided to go into our futures separately but forever connected,” said Good and Franklin in a written statement.
“We celebrate almost a decade of marriage together and a love that is eternal. There’s no one at fault, we believe this is the next best chapter in the evolution of our love. We are incredibly grateful for the life-changing years we’ve spent together as husband and wife. We are also extremely thankful to God for the testimony being created inside us both and for blessing our lives with each other.”
