Mel Gibson Divorce: Mel Could Have Certainly Benefited from A Prenup…

Mel Gibson did not have a pre-nuptial agreement.  Costly mistake Mel.

Mel Gibson and his soon-to-be-ex Australian wife, Robyn Moore, are selling their Malibu family mansion for $16 million dollars as their divorce enters its final phases.  Gibson has been forced to carve up his estate and assets throughout his long-standing divorce proceedings.

Gibson’s divorce could have been a lot faster, cheaper and less painful for his family had he and Robyn had the foresight to enter into a pre-nuptial agreement before taking the plunge to get married.

While $16 million dollars may seem like a lot to some, Mel Gibson has earned at least $1 billion, yes that was a “b,” in his career as an Hollywood actor, director and producer.

Still, if it were me, I would rather not have to sell my mansion because I lacked the good sense to enter into a prenup to split the proceeds with my soon-to-be-ex-wife.  We all know that Mel could have afforded to hire the most prestigious divorce and family law firm to represent him in entering a prenuptial agreement.

Mel Gibson has already has had a daughter with his Russian girlfriend, pianist Oksana Grigorieva.  Sounds like it’s time to reach a settlement Mel…

There placing the mansion on the market hints that Mel and his Australian wife, Robyn Moore, have reached a divorce settlement agreement.

    Mel Gibson as I recall is a pretty old-school religious Catholic although apparently not so much as to preclude divorce save a church annulment. I know many religious people seem to have a resistance to entering into a prenuptial agreements. That being said, you make many valid secular points for entering into a prenup. What are you thoughts on any religious implications?

    Check your facts. Mel had earned all of $15,000 AUS from Mad Max when he married his pregnant girlfriend, Robyn in June 1980. She financially supported him for the early years of their life together as he worked to make a name for himself as an actor. There was no big fortune at stake at the time of their marriage and no money for a prestigious law firm even if he wanted such a service.

    You have a good point. We don’t always know where our future’s going to take us. Regardless of whether he could have hired the most prestigious law firm or just a regular law firm is not the point. The point that I am trying to make is that you can protect yourself from such a costly divorce by having the sense to enter into a prenuptial agreement. I am not a Hollywood gossip columnist, but rather an divorce and family law attorney, so please forgive my ignorance surrounding Mel Gibson’s early years! 🙂

    I’m not sure about the Catholic religious implications, as I am not a religious scholar. Makes sense though. I choose to stay out of religion and politics on my blog and in my life for the most part!

    If you have a child from a previous marriage or when you were young, I also suggest to have a prenuptial agreement for the sake of your other child. Mel Gibson should think about it especially in other countries that annulment and divorce is common and being practice.

    It is best to marry someone you really know. If you’re not marrying someone you’ve really known for a long time, then a prenuptial agreement is best.

    Mel has recently been accused of violence against his girlfriend. I expect he will get away with it, like Charlie Sheen.
