Marsha Garces Williams files paperwork in San Francisco after nearly 19 years
Robin Williams’s wife has filed for divorce after 19 years of marriage, the actor’s rep, Mara Buxbaum, has confirmed to PEOPLE.
Marsha Garces Williams filed a divorce petition in San Francisco on March 21, citing irreconcilable differences, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. The pair have two children together: daughter Zelda, 18, and son Cody, 16.
Garces, 51, and Williams, 56, wed in April 1989, shortly after the actor’s divorce from his previous wife.
According to the eight-page court filing, Garces is asking for joint legal custody of Cody – that the boy live with her and Williams get visitation – as well as payment of attorney fees and spousal support (amount to be determined).
The papers indicate she will ask the court to divide their property once all their assets have been tallied.
During their marriage, the couple also worked together. Garces was a producer on several of her husband’s films, including Jakob the Liar, Patch Adams, and Mrs. Doubtfire.
