In July, Bertinelli responded to her earlier challenge to her prenuptial agreement by filing a 13-page request to separate her marital status from the financial hardship of her and Tom Vitale’s divorce, according to court documents obtained by PEOPLE. According to court documents, Bertinelli sought “a preliminary and separate trial on the issue of the validity of the prenuptial agreement.”

Ultimately, Bertinelli’s request was intended to be a separate process from other unresolved issues related to the divorce — according to records, Vitale was awarded $50,000 a month in spousal support and $200,000 in legal fees by early July. Then he took a step.

Bertinelli’s request argued that their prenuptial agreement, signed in 2010 before the two married, contained “temporary and permanent spousal support waivers.”

In court documents from the initial divorce filing, Bertinelli cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the dissolution of their marriage.

After several years of dating, Bertinelli married Vitale in 2011 in a New Year’s Eve ceremony at their Malibu cliffside home. He was introduced by his brother Patrick.
