Courteney Cox to drop Arquette name

2012-06-14 14:01
 
Los Angeles - Courteney Cox Arquette is seeking to legally drop her husband's name once the former couple's divorce is finalised.

The actress 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 on Friday.

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 31 December 31 2011, as their official separation date.

The pair met on the set of the film Scream in 1996 and married three years later.

Cox's filing was first reported on Wednesday by celebrity website TMZ.
