The Alias alum and Gone Girl star announced their split one day after their 10-year anniversary. Divorce lawyer Laura Wasser revealed to Radar that the reason they split after 10 years together was so Jen could receive more alimony from her ex-husband. “Ten years in California generally reflects a long-term marriage,” the lawyer said. “When you hit 10 years, it usually means that the court will continue to have jurisdiction over spousal support, absent an agreement to the contrary.” She added, “If you’ve been married for 10 years, people don’t usually agree to a cutoff date for ongoing spousal support, which would otherwise be half the length of the marriage.” Jen could get support payment indefinitely, as opposed to just for five years.
