Military disability benefits topic of debate in alimony case

A 42-year-old military veteran has brought his case involving military benefits and alimony payments to the U.S. Supreme Court.

The Air Force veteran is hoping that the court will outlaw the use of military disability benefits when determining alimony. The man was married for almost 20 years, and at the time of his divorce, he was earning military disability in the amount of $4,400 per month.

In 2010, a judge ruled that the man was responsible for paying his ex-spouse roughly $1,000 in spousal support. That number was calculated based on the inclusion of the veteran’s military benefits.

Mena Suvari’s former spouse wants $17,000 in spousal support

Mena Suvari was married to her husband for approximately 18 months before they decided to end their marriage. Her former husband, Simone Sestito, is seeking $17,000 a month in spousal support in the divorce.

The American Beauty actress apparently earns $750,000 a year and lives an elegant lifestyle. Sestito claims that he needs  $3,000 alone every month in order to eat out as many times as he did when he was married to Suvari. He also reveals that he is in financial ruin, in both the personal and business aspects of his life, and therefore this large amount of support is justified for helping him stay afloat.

This is Suvari’s second marriage and divorce. She was married Robert Brinkmann for five years before divorcing in 2005. Her current divorce procedure is still in the early stages.
