Michael Sterling, husband of Real Housewives of Atlanta star Eva Marcille, has filed a response to her divorce petition, requesting that the whole case be dismissed and the two remain married. While he did not specify a custody agreement, he asked for the court to deny her request for primary custody of their three children. Eva had filed for divorce in March, citing a “bona fide state of separation” and seeking custody and child support.
Michael Sterling has asked the court to dismiss his wife Eva Marcille’s divorce case and deny her request for primary custody of their children, stating his desire to work towards an amicable resolution but noting that Eva should pay his legal fees.
Reality star Eva Marcille has filed for divorce from her husband Michael Sterling after two and a half years of marriage. The couple shares three children together, and Eva is seeking primary custody of the kids as well as child support. In response, Michael is asking the court to dismiss the case and let them remain married. If that is not possible, he wants an amicable resolution and for Eva to pay his legal fees.
The Georgia court filing lists the couple as “currently living in a bona fide state of separation” and cites the marriage as “irretrievably broken” with no chance of reconciliation. Eva had previously been in a relationship with Kevin McCall and had a child, Marley, with him. However, Michael treated Marley as his own child.
After filing for divorce, Eva released a statement expressing how difficult the decision had been. She also asked for privacy during this challenging time. Michael, on the other hand, announced that he plans to fight for his marriage and win back his wife. Despite this, he has hired a divorce lawyer to represent him in court.
The couple’s divorce proceedings have sparked speculation in the media, with many sources speculating on the reason for the split. However, neither Eva nor Michael has commented on the matter, and the focus remains on their three children and achieving a peaceful resolution.
