Arnold Schwarzenegger is preparing for what will be a big divorce battle with Maria Shriver. The former governor of California, who revealed details of his own sex scandal, which involved a love child with an ex-housekeeper, has officially hired a lawyer.

Arnold hired attorney Bob Kaufman, TMZ reports, and the powerhouse lawyer is allegedly already "tackling some touchy issues of the split."

Sources tell TMZ that Kaufman has contacted Maria's attorney, Laura Wasser, and they are "moving forward" with the divorce process.

Both attorneys have worked high-profile celebrity splits and are known for keeping their divorce settlements "hush-hush," according to TMZ.

Arnold shocked the world last month when he confirmed that he had fathered a child with a member of his and Maria's household staff. The woman is reported to be Mildred Patricia Baena, now 50, and their love child is 13.
