Child custody is the major sticking point in the negotiation of the final divorce settlement,
It seems that Tiger is prepared to be financially generous, as long as his children can continue to be a part of his life.
Money Is Not a Real Issue for Tiger Woods
Money does not appear to be a priority for Tiger Woods in this divorce. Despite Elin’s outrageous demand for $750 million, there haven’t been any reports that Tiger is balking at handing over that amount. See Elin Nordegren’s Revenge - $750 Million and NO Confidentiality Clause – Will Tiger Woods Pay?
NOTE: In December 2009, Forbes magazine estimated Tiger Woods net worth to be approximately $600 million. Revised estimates put that amount as being to $900 million.
So Tiger does not seem to be overly concerned about the amount of money being asked for in the divorce settlement.
His major concerns are his privacy, hence the request for Elin to sign a lifetime confidentiality clause; and joint custody of his children, who he says are the most important things in his life. See Why is Elin Nordegren Refusing to Sign Tiger Woods Lifetime Confidentiality Clause?
Once the details of the divorce settlement have been worked out, the divorce can be finalized.
And Tiger Woods will be able to focus more fully on his game golf.
