That move made the Palin family frequently appear on television and social media. The couple may not be appearing together on any platform if Todd’s file for divorce from his wife comes to pass.

TODD PALIN FILE FOR DIVORCE

Todd filed a divorce document in the Anchorage Superior Court on Friday. The paper asked the court to end his 31-year marriage to his wife, Sarah, over the couple’s incompatible temperaments which has made it impossible for them to cohabit as husband and wife.

The divorce document also asks that the couple have joint legal custody of their child, 11-year-old Trig Palin. The divorce documents didn’t clearly state the names of the parties, though the initials matched that of Todd and Sarah; their date of marriage and the date of birth of their child.

TODD’S ATTORNEY WANTS THE CASE TO BE CONFIDENTIAL

Todd is represented by an Anchorage attorney who goes by the name, Kimberlee Colbo. Kimberlee expressed her desire to have the divorce proceedings classified as confidential from now on.

TODD AND PALIN’S MARRIAGE

The couple married in 1988 and have five children, Track, 30, Bristol, 28, Willow, 25, Piper, 18, and Trig. Trig, apart from being a minor, also has Downs Syndrome.

Todd has not made the headlines as much as his politician wife, though he was very visible during the presidential campaigns in 2008. His major headline-making news came in 2016 when he was involved in a snowmobile accident, suffering severe injuries to his body.
