New York – Huma Abedin has finally filed for divorce according to many reports. Anthony Weiner just plead guilty to sexting with a minor and will have to register as a sex offender.
The New York Post reports:
Abedin brought an “Anonymous vs. Anonymous” action in Manhattan Supreme Court, asking for the court to seal the case.
The filing is uncontested, meaning she is not expecting a fight over custody of the couple’s only child, 5-year-old son Jordan, or their assets.
Given Weiner’s guilty plea — and soon-to-be status as a sex offender — it appears that Abedin holds all the cards, specifically when it comes to their son, experts said.
“She could run to family court and file a petition [attempting to limit his access] immediately,” noted lawyer Israel Fried, who specializes in repping sex offenders.
“She could also seek an order of protection,” Fried said.
CNN is reporting that Huma Abedin filed for divorce before Weiner plead guilty to sexting with a minor on Friday morning:
Huma Abedin has filed for divorce from former Rep. Anthony Weiner, a move she made prior to Weiner pleading guilty Friday to transferring obscene material to a minor, a source familiar with the matter told CNN.Abedin, a top aide to former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, was not present at Friday’s hearing.
