According to a recent report, De Laurentiis and fashion designer Todd Thompson are officially divorced now that the financial terms have been finalized. The division of property seems to favor the ex-husband who is set receive half of De Laurentiis’s upcoming cookbook advances, including $2.5 million to be paid for two culinary tomes from the Food Network star.

However, Thompson is to receive $9,000 per month in child support, though the two parents will share custody of their one child.
He is also going to take ownership of their $3.2 million Pacific Palisades home. He is worth $15 million, according to the media report, while she is worth a bit more ($20 million).

That’s why it is so important to bring to the table an experienced negotiator; a Nevada family law attorney who understands your priorities and protects your interests in all dealings with the other party.
