Maria Shriver has hired powerful divorce attorney Laura Wasser to handle her split from womanizing husband of 25 years, Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Although Maria has yet to file for divorce, she has reportedly been in talks with Wasser for quite some time over how she should handle her broken marriage.
Maria recently responded to news that Arnold fathered a child with a household employee ten years ago. In a statement, Maria said:
- "This is a painful and heartbreaking time. As a mother, my concern is for the children. I ask for compassion, respect and privacy as my children and I try to rebuild our lives and heal."
