Divorce Is Been A Nightmare For Tiger Woods Wife Elin Nordegren

Filled under:

We came to the decision that our marriage was at an end, the primary focus of our amicable discussions has been to ensure their future well-being, continues the statement. The weeks and months ahead will not be easy for them as we adjust to a new family situation, which is why our privacy must be a principal concern.

Tiger Woods and Elin Nordgren have avoided the courts and come to a private, amicable settlement that will include financial provision for Ms Nordgren and their two children as well as shared parenting. The stress of reaching that settlement may explain Tiger Woods' recent poor form on the golf course. Family Law has a profound effect on the people involved and often causes them great anxiety and stress even where there isn't a billion dollars in assets to consider.

The divorce was dissolved this morning (Aug 23) in Bay County, Florida. The papers say that the divorce “is hereby dissolved because it is irretrievably broken.” Elin had also requested to have her maiden name restored to Elin Maria Pernilla Nordegren and that was granted as well.

The custody of their two children was at the heart of discussions between lawyers ahead of the divorce.It is believed they will live primarily with Miss Nordegren, who may return to Sweden, but Woods will have regular access.

Divorce is big business, and the highest profile divorces cost millions of dollars. The Woods' drama has been a long time coming. Many are shocked that this didn't transpire sometime around Christmas.

According to news reports Tiger Woods divorce from Elin is final requiring only final filing in Orlando County Court. The settlement is rumored to be around 3/4 of a million dollars which is supposedly the highest payout of a celebrity divorce. Other requirements of the agreement are that Tiger may not bring any other female around the children, Elin may never speak publicly about his mistresses and she gets full custody of the children but they share legal custody.

The cracks started to appear in Woods's previously flawless image last November when he crashed his car into a fire hydrant in his Florida driveway in the middle of the night. What, on the surface of it, could have been an unremarkable accident took an unexpected turn when police reported that Nordegren had been spotted at the scene brandishing a golf club, and neither she nor Woods would talk to them.

Woods ranks third in PGA Tour history with 71 wins, yet hasn’t won a tournament since returning in April following a break of almost five months.He is playing this week at the PGA Tour’s first playoff event, the Barclays at Ridgewood Country Club in Paramus, New Jersey. Depending on the tournament’s results, Woods could lose his No. 1 ranking to Phil Mickelson
