The Quaids have been married for almost 8 years and are the parents of 4-yr old twins Thomas Boone and Zoe Grace. In 2007, the twins nearly died after accidentally receiving an overdose of heparin at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. The Quaids sued the hospital and drug manufacturer and were awarded a settlement of $750,000.
The couple will share custody of the twins, while Buffington-Quaid retains possession of the couple’s home and Mercedes. Quaid gets the Cadillac. They will have joint custody of the Range Rover. She wants fair division of community assets; Quaid reportedly wants her to get nothing.
This will be Dennis Quaid’s third divorce. He was previously married to, and divorced from, actresses PJ Soles and Meg Ryan.
