Bristol Palin‘s husband, Dakota Meyer, has officially filed for divorce after less than two years of marriage.
The Medal of Honor recipient tried to keep the split under wraps by using only his and Palin’s initials in the documents, but PEOPLE has obtained the papers filed in a Travis County court in Austin, Texas.
According to the papers, Meyer said he (D.L.M.) and Palin (B.S.M.M.) are in the process of separating and cited “discord or conflict of personalities” as the reason for their split. The discord, the papers said, “destroys the legitimate ends of the marriage relationship and prevents any reasonable expectation of reconciliation.”
Meyer, who shares two young daughters with Palin, Atlee Bay, 9 months, and Sailor Grace, 2, said he believes he and Palin will enter into a written agreement over the custody of their children as well as the division of their estate. (Their estate?)
A source knowledgeable of the situation tells PEOPLE Meyer moved out of their home in Austin, Texas, around Christmas.
Yep, around Christmas. That is another thing the IM sleuths got right.
On the divorce papers, which can be seen here, it appears that Dakota made this move to protect some of his assets which he believes are not part of the marriage agreement.
It is also fairly plain that he anticipates a fight and has circled his wagons in preparation.
In other words, yes this could be yet another ugly Palin legal battle.
Well hopefully they will not schedule it for March 27th, Track's trial date, or the Palins will not know which courtroom to show up in to watch their family fall apart.
