As per Chrisehll’s divorce papers, she has asked for spousal support. She also wants Justin to pay for her attorney’s fees. But Justin’s papers state that he neither wants to pay the attorney fees of Chrishell nor wants to give her spousal support.

The couple’s divorce timeline

Just one week prior to the divorce announcement, Chrishell had hosted a viewing party for the Hallmark Channel movie Holiday for Heroes. Her then-husband Justin and their friend Melissa Claire Egan were present at the party. Melissa had shared multiple pictures of the event on her social media and wrote:

“SO lucky for these friends, and so lucky for my besties @chrishellhartley & @justinhartley, throwing a screening party for ‘Holiday for Heroes’ tonight. Best friends ever. If you missed it, it will air again, check it out! @hallmarkmovie,”

After the 22 November 2019 split, Chrishell broke her silence on the subject and wrote on her social media on 2 December 2019:

“It’s hard to watch people change right in front of you. But it’s even harder remembering who they used to be,”

She also made changes in her social media bio and deleted the word wife and stepmom from it. On 5 December, Justin was in a photo in Los Angeles and his wedding ring was missing.
