George Lopez; A Case Study of Divorce ComplicationsComedian George Lopez’ ex-wife Ann Serano, filed for divorce way back in November of 2011. Unfortunately for Lopez, he is still having to deal with the rest of the divorce process that has followed almost a year later. Serano cited irreconcilable differences as the reason behind her filing for divorce in California after 17 years of marriage and one child together.

A Year later, both parties are still hashing out the finalities of the divorce. Serano wants to dip her hand into Lopez’ retirement fund, and Lopez is apparently not too happy about this development.

    Where did you get your information? This couple had no pre-nuptial agreement. When Ann married George he has $5 in his pocket and she had all the money. This was all settled a year ago. The retirement part had to go through the courts and took this long. California law says they split everything… Including retirement funds 50/50. I know this couple…there was no fight about that is the law!
