Sarah & Todd Palin Unable to Settle Terms of Their Divorce; Set to Face Off in a Divorce Trial Next Year

“Bring it on, baby!”

Sarah Palin and her estranged husband Todd are heading to trial to move forward with their divorce. 

According to The Blast, a judge has scheduled the Palin divorce trial to begin April 6 of next year. The courtroom battle is expected to last four days. 

As The Ashley told you last month, Todd filed for divorce after 30 years of marriage to Sarah, claiming “incompatibility and temperament between the two parties such that they find it impossible to live together as husband and wife.” 

It was also revealed at the time that Todd had enlisted the legal assistance of Alaskan attorney Kimberlee Colbo to represent him in the divorce—the same attorney Dakota Meyer used to divorce Todd and Sarah’s daughter (and former Teen Mom OG star) Bristol in 2018. 

The Blast reports that Sarah filed her answer to Todd’s divorce petition on September 20, however, she also filed a counterclaim against her estranged husband, denoting that she did not agree with him on all issues in their divorce. The pair’s trial date was set the day Todd responded to Sarah’s counterclaim. According to court records, the former Sarah Palin’s Alaska stars have been unable to resolve the issues in their divorce case.

  1. Another thing I don’t understand, is why in God’s name does it take so long to get a divorce? To me, divorces should be like ripping off a bandaid, the faster it’s over the quicker the pain can go away.


  2. I wonder if the “temperament issues” are related to the fight Todd got in with his addict son, Track, and Trigg’s disabilities.


  3. WHAT ARE THOSE CHILDRENS NAMES????
    Honestly, if TM had been around when Sarah was young, she would’ve fit right in with the names she gave her kids.


        1. I thought it was sarcasm but I wasn’t sure. All I saw was a question and answered it. There was no need to be nasty and hateful.


    1. I like them too. But who in their right mind, gets married and takes 31 years to realize that they have incompatible temperaments and can’t remain under the same roof?

      They should have figured that out bm (before marriage). I mean, I highly doubt that they didn’t live together beforehand.

      My thought is that it was a “shotgun wedding” because she was already knocked up.


      1. Are you 12? People change as they grow older, some marriages work, some don’t. It’s very common.
        Who cares if it was a shot gun wedding or they lived together 30 yrs ago. wow!


        1. I don’t care, it’s their lives NOT MINE.

          I was just voicing my opinion, that’s something else that is quite common. Especially on this site. I mean, that is what it’s for…correct?


      2. My parents divorced when I was 34 & they’d been married just shy of 35 years. I was a honeymoon baby and my dad stuck around because of my sister and I.


        1. I applaud your father 👏👏. There’s nothing wrong them (as people) or the fact that they divorced. I just wish they (and all divorced couples) had figured out their differences before they involved children. The children always suffer when two people realize they shouldn’t be married and it’s not fair. At least, that’s how I feel about that.

          Btw, I truly am sorry for the things I said about you and your son.
