Arthur Sulzberger, Jr. fighting over prenup in divorce

On Behalf of | Aug 20, 2021 | high asset divorce |

Things do not always go well in court when spouses disagree about assets or liabilities as they bring a marriage to a close. Divorce can be complex, especially if it involves a prenuptial agreement and the spouses in question are disputing its terms. Some Minnesota readers may relate to the current situation between Arthur Sulzberger, Jr., and his ex. 

Sulzberger made a name for himself before his divorce 

Many people recognize Sulzberger’s name from his prior work as a publisher for the New York Times. His marriage to Gabrielle Greene lasted just under six years. It appears that Sulzberger signed a prenuptial agreement in 2014 but says his ex has misinterpreted its terms. The exact language of the prenup has been kept confidential, although many people have speculated that it likely refers to stock in The New York Times and other property issues. 

When spouses disagree, the court can make the decision for them 

High-net-worth divorces can be complex. It is said that Sulzberger’s net worth is approximately $16 million. Greene also knew her own success as a businesswoman before the divorce when she was the chairwoman of Whole Foods. When spouses are unable to achieve a fair settlement on their own, the court will ultimately decide outstanding issues for them.  

The Sulzberger vs. Greene divorce is a contested proceeding 

Court records have been sealed in the Sulzberger versus Greene divorce. It is listed, however, as a contested lawsuit. Such proceedings can be stressful and difficult to resolve, even with the court’s intervention. Any Minnesota spouse who is worried about property division proceedings may request support from an experienced family law attorney, which can not only help alleviate stress but ensure that the spouse’s rights and financial interests will be protected in court.
