Kim has moved on soon after the separation and found a boyfriend in Ken Palmer. She resides with him now in Florida. Kim’s three minor children with Barry [daughters Amber Plath (15 years), Cassia Plath (13 years), and Mercy Plath (11 years)] are staying with their dad, Barry. But now, Kim has asked for full custody of her three minor kids. Their other six kids are adults already and hence will not be part of the custody battle.

Other demands of Kim

Besides, full custody of their three minor daughters, Kim has also demanded that Barry should pay her child support allowance. He should also compensate her for the money she spends on legal fees for the divorce.

Additionally, Kim has stated that the marital assets as well as debts should be equally divided between her and Barry.

Barry has not yet filed his response to her demands. But fans are of the opinion that Barry might not yield to her demands. Because it was Kim who started the divorce procedure due to the irretrievably broken state of their marriage, according to her.

On the other hand, Kim believes strongly that Barry will bow down to her demands and pay her. She states that she had specific reasons for the divorce. But, she will reveal it in case Barry challenges the marriage dissolution. She will have no qualms in revealing those reasons if she has to. The divorce is heading to a messy land.
