Schwarzenegger does not want to pay spousal support
Lawyers for the `Terminator` actor - who`s wife left him after discovering he had fathered a child with their former housekeeper - have marked two points of conflict against her divorce petition; her requests for spousalsupport and that Arnold pays her legal fees.
Lawyer Bob Kaufman, representing Arnold, has asked the judge to strike any right to support on Maria`s part, and that each party pay their own legal fees.
The couple have no prenuptial agreement, meaning all assets and property accrued during their 25 year marriage - estimated at around $400 million - will be divided equally.
Both parties have asked for joint custody of their two minor children, Patrick, 17, and Christopher, 13, and they also have two grown children, Katherine, 21, Christina, 19, together.
While former governor of California Arnold objects to paying his estranged wife support, he is said to be giving a large sum in child support while they work on a divorce settlement.
A source said: "Arnold is paying a significant amount, and also paying for his sons, Patrick and Christopher`s private school bills."
It has also been reported the 63-year-old actor is ready to agree a "very generous" settlement with Maria.
Another insider said: "Arnold realises he is to blame for the collapse of his marriage. Maria was a loving wife and mother, and he doesn`t think that any amount of money can minimize what he has put her through.
"He wants to do the right thing, and go above and beyond what is required of him under the law. "This is going to be a very amicable divorce, and it won`t be played out in the media."
