“Katie clearly has the upper hand in the proceedings at
this point. It can’t be emphasised enough that she took these
extraordinary measures to protect her daughter, Suri.”
As I mentioned in a previous post, Tom cannot file a divorce petition in California because two petitions can’t be filed in different states simultaneously.
“Tom will have to file a formal response to Katie’s divorce petition in New York, and he is going to submit a motion to have the case dismissed because he believes it isn’t the proper venue. Tom is hopeful that New York will do the right thing and allow him to file in California.“Tom’s Los Angeles lawyers have officially been given notice. Tom’s New York lawyer will appear and it’s undetermined at this time if Tom will be in court also because he is currently shooting a movie.”
Katie is expected to ask for temporary child support, and Tom may request visitation in addition to filing to have the case dismissed so he can file in California. If these early maneuverings are any indication, this is shaping up to be one of the nastiest divorces Hollywood has seen in a while.
