Courteney seeks to drop ‘Arquette’

entertainment Updated: Jun 16, 2012 02:07 IST

Actor Courteney Cox Arquette is seeking to legally drop her husband’s name once the former couple’s divorce is finalised. The actor included the request in a response to estranged husband David Arquette’s divorce filing. Records show both actors filed their paperwork within a minute of each other. Both cite irreconcilable differences as the reason for the end of their 12-year marriage, and both are seeking custody of their 8-year-old daughter.

Arquette and Cox are representing themselves in the proceedings. They announced their separation in October 2010, but both listed in court records December 31, 2011, as their official separation date. The pair met on the set of the film Scream in 1996 and got married three years later.
