Does he have a fighting chance?
“Sugar” Shane Mosley is ready to stage a comeback at age 43. But before the boxer returns to the ring this weekend, he has started a legal fight with his ex-wife. Mosley insists in court documents that his 2002 Las Vegas wedding was not valid because the woman he married that day was already married.
Perhaps more important, Mosley wants his $6 million back. That’s the figure he agreed to in a 2011 divorce settlement. The former champ claims in court documents that he found out last month about his ex-wife’s bigamy. He says because he was never legally married to the mother of his three children, the divorce and financial agreement are also invalid.
The family law attorney for Mosley’s ex says “she was never married simultaneously to anyone while she was married to Mosley.”
The California judge hearing the case said it isn’t clear that the boxer will be able to overturn the four-year-old divorce agreement, according to a report. Plus, Mosley will be obligated for child support regardless of the outcome of the bigamy allegations.
It isn’t clear how the courts will deal with the fighter’s accusations. It is clear that in most property division disputes, one of the most important decisions a person can make is choosing an established, experienced law firm and attorney. In order to protect your interests, it makes sense to have a Clark County lawyer with a track record of protecting clients in disputes over a business, real estate, pensions, trusts and other holdings.
