Judge awards ex of convenience store tycoon most of their fortune

When difficulties present themselves in a relationship, couples in Massachusetts may choose to keep it private or at least among close friends and family members. This luxury is not always present when a high profile or public figure is getting a divorce. Often a high-asset divorce will be covered by the media and will often make the process more challenging for the couple dissolving their marriage.

The divorce between the former convenience store tycoon Christy Mihos and his wife has been described by the judge as being both bizarre and unnerving. Moreover, the judge stated that Mihos has no one to blame but himself. The divorce was recently finalized and the judge awarded his ex-wife with most of the couples remaining four million dollars in assets.

During the divorce proceedings, various divorce legal issues presented themselves. It was reported that Mihos lied about not using personal funds in his two failed bids for governor. According to the attorney of his ex-wife, Mihos squandered approximately $25 million since 2009 when he sold his convenience store empire. It was presumed that he spent that astounding amount of money on politics but much of it was spent on prostitutes.

Although their divorce has been finalized, the past disputes between the couples are still at issue. In fact, Mihos is still facing charges for assaulting his wife in their lavish house that was recently ordered by the judge to be sold.

The divorce process is rarely if ever an easy event to go through. It can be extremely emotional and difficult. Those struggling through the divorce procedures should make sure they have a strong support system. Furthermore, they should understand their legal rights and options in order to navigate the process adequately.
