Arnie, Maria Shriver progress with divorce settlement talks

June 8, 2011 - Washington

Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver have already started settlement talks, even though the couple hasn't formally filed for a divorce, according to sources.

"Maria is extremely bright, and trusts her lawyer, Laura Wasser. Maria wants to ensure that she gets a fair settlement and that her children's future is secure, that is all she cares about, period," quoted a source as saying.

"Maria has already begun to move on from her failed marriage. She and Arnold do talk, they have to-they have four children together. But, Maria has made it clear to Arnold that there is no chance at reconciliation. Arnold finally seems to be accepting this, but he doesn't like it," the insider added.

When enquired as to when the couple will formally file for divorce, sources revealed, "there just isn't a rush to file. Maria and Arnold are separated, and they both have excellent lawyers."

"It's very likely that they will iron out a divorce settlement before they even file, and that is the goal."

Sources also disclosed that Schwarzenegger's estimated net worth is around 300 million dollars, but Maria has told her attorney to keep the costs down.
