Jane Lynch’s divorce has been finalized. The divorce comes just four years after the couple were married. Lynch filed in 2013, citing irreconcilable differences.
Divorce: Irreconcilable Differences
Citing “irreconcilable differences” means a couple cannot come to agreement on basic and fundamental issues within a marriage. It is often used as justification for a “no-fault divorce,” in which neither party is accused of wrong-doing for the dissolution of a marriage. California is a “no-fault divorce” state.
The couple were married on Memorial Day in 2010 in Massachusetts. Massachusetts became the first U.S. state to legalize gay marriage on May 17, 2004.
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Ralph C. Hofer just approved the pair’s divorce settlement. The settlement calls for Dr. Lara Embry, a clinical psychologist, to receive half of about everything. Embry will receive a lump simp of $1.2 million over a 2-year period. She will also receive half of several bank accounts and trust accounts, totaling $847,485. She will also receive half of Lynch’s 401K, totaling $315,079, and half of the royalties from Lynch’s TV’s appearances, including Glee. Embry will also receive have the proceeds from the couple’s Mullholland Tennis Club membership, and half of the couple’s $56,810 tax refund. Embry will receive the L.A. Yacht club membership and Francis, the couple’s dog.
