Tom Schwartz isn't troubled by the idea of divorce because his parents went through a bitter separation, RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal!
Kimberly Sue Schwartz filed for divorce on November 15, 2010 after 33 years of marriage. She tied the knot with William C. Schwartz on April 3, 1977 and separated on June 5, 2010.
The couple had three children together, and William had two adult sons from a previous marriage. William had a total of eight kids — all adults at the time of filing.
Kimberly asked for alimony, claiming that she had "insufficient funds to support herself without Husband's assistance, considering the standard of living established during the marriage." But, the couple couldn't afford their lifestyle and was forced to file for bankruptcy in April 2012 while their divorce was being processed.
Kimberly also asked for "the exclusive possession, use, and occupancy of the parties' marital residence, together with all of the furniture, furnishings, and appliances located therein in order to provide a home place for herself temporarily and permanently."
Finally, she asked for the court to restore her maiden name.
William and Kimberly settled their divorce quickly, but agreed not to enter their final judgment until after September 1, 2011. The court filed their paperwork the following year.
A restraining order against William was also amended in the judgment to allow him to return home for two hours per week to perform chores.
"The Husband is not permitted to drink alcohol or be under the influence of alcohol during the time he is at the marital home/property," the judgment read. "The Husband shall not threaten, assault, or harm the Wife nor make derogatory comments to the Wife."

Kimberly was given the couple's livestock, while William was given their three bran cats and dog. She was also allowed to keep her Jeep Grand Cherokee, but William was ordered to pay the $400 car title change fee.
They were ordered to be responsible for their own finances as well, but "the husband shall be responsible for the following debts and shall at least pay the minimum payment on credit card bills for Home Depot…Lowes account…Capital One account…A1A Truck and Auto Capital One…Sears."
Kimberly was granted the exclusive use of their family home until it was sold — but there was a catch.
"Upon the sale and closing of the property, after deduction of the usual and customary closing costs, the sale proceeds shall be paid out in order as follows: $8,000 to the Wife's aunt, Jill Piscovich, for the purchase of the Wife's vehicle, $5,000 to the Wife's mother, and $5,000 towards the remaining credit card debt," the divorce judgment read. "The remaining funds will be divided sixty percent to the wife and forty percent to the Husband."
Now, Tom is married to Katie Maloney — and they have their own share of problems. Kristen Doute claimed on an episode of Vanderpump Rules that their relationship turned south after Tom cheated on Maloney in Las Vegas.
