Chris Rock Finalizes Divorce in New Jersey Courtroom

Hollywood actor and comedian Chris Rock has officially finalized his divorce from his longtime wife Malaak Rock.

Rock and his wife were married for roughly 20 years and legally separated two years ago. The couple had two children together, so child custody and child support were always going to be issues that needed to be resolved in the divorce.

Rock recently appeared with his ex-wife in a New Jersey family court and signed off on the divorce settlement, which was subsequently approved by the NJ divorce court judge. However, these issues were magnified by a conflict over a third child in the marriage. According to Rock’s ex-wife, the eight-year-old kid, Ntombi, was part of the family. As such, she argued in court, Rock should have to pay additional child support.

Rock countered the claims for more child support by stating that Ntombi was not his daughter. Rock and his ex-spouse reportedly adopted Ntombi from South Africa when she was just six months old. From that point forward, the child lived with the Rocks. However, since Rock never officially adopted Ntombi, he did not believe that he should be required to provide child support for the kid.

Since Rock and his ex-wife legally separated in 2014, the famed comedian has reportedly maintained close ties with his other two children; however, he has not seen the third child, who is now eight years old.

At long last, it appears that the drama surrounding Chris Rock’s divorce is finally at an end. The divorce settlement hammered out by the ex-spouses’ respective lawyers reportedly includes some form of financial support for Rock’s ex-wife. Since the terms of the divorce agreement have not been disclosed, what remains unclear is whether Rock will be paying child support for Ntombi.

Attorney Graziano is one of the brightest and most compassionate professionals which anyone could work with! He is a great advocate and is extremely knowledgable of the judicial system. He made a very unpleasant legal situation a pleasant journey, and he helped keep things in perspective and in a positive light. I fully recommend him without reservation! Danielle
Robyn made the divorce process bearable by making sure I was ok every step of the way. She was a fighter when she needed to be and compassionate the rest of the time. The thing I liked best about her is that she was encouraging when I needed to get my end of the work done. She was reasonably priced and worked hard to get my case settled. I have since recommended her to 3 other friends who have retained her services. Ana Z.
It seemed like my case took forever but I trusted Ron Graziano and listened to what he had to say. Mr Graziano said that the insurance company was not being fair and that we should go to trial. The trial was very nerve racking however he eased my mind and killed them with proof and knowledge. My outcome of my trial brought me to tears of joy. I could never imagine such a good outcome. Listen to him, have faith and you too will be impressed. Robin
After a divorce, my ex-husband was not keeping up with his scheduled child support payments. With the help and knowledge of Robyn Flynn, I was able to resolve this issue. Being a single mother of three children, Robyn Flynn made me a priority. I felt respected by her always keeping me informed and encouraged. She was not only my lawyer, but a friend during a very stressful time in my life. I would never use another attorney other than Robyn Flynn and highly recommend her to my friends as a trustworthy, professional and experienced lawyer. Anna H.
