TMZ.com has obtained the documents contained in today’s petition for the dissolution of marriage between Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren Woods.
The petition, which was subsequently approved by a judge in Panama City, Fla., today, does reveal details previously unknown regarding the couple’s parting.
In the filing, Elin petitioned and was granted restoration of her maiden name:
”Elin Maria Pernilla Nordegren.”
The majority of the marital settlement was actually signed off by Tiger and Elin on July 3 & 4, making today’s court appearance no more than a formality.
The filing also revealed when Elin officially moved out of the house.
From the above document, you can see that Tiger’s now-ex-wife officially left the family home, with children in tow, in November, 2009.
What’s most interesting about today’s events is the news that Elin wants her maiden name back - indicating she has no interesting trafficking in her ex-husband’s fame.
Yes, Nordegren will be compensated handsomely in the aftermath of the breakup, and she undoubtedly signed a confidentiality agreeement, but somehow I think she wants to make a complete break from her former husband.
With the sordid details of his infidelity, who can blame her?
