In recent news, the wife of Brian Cashman, general manager for the New York Yankees, filed for divorce. The general manager was publicly accused of an affair. Cashman's wife has recently filed papers in a Connecticut court.
The woman is seeking alimony, a split of their property and joint custody of their two children. Cashman's wife has retained an attorney who has familiarity with high-end divorces.
The woman who allegedly engaged in the extramarital affair with the general manager claims that she had a yearlong relationship with Cashman.

If you are facing a similar situation in the process of your separation, you may want to speak to an attorney.
