As the world tries to make sense out of the heinous acts perpetrated by Adam Lanza, details are emerging about his mother’s financial situation, and let’s just say, money was not one of the family’s problems

Peter and Nancy Lanza divorce papers uncovered by TMZ also indicate that there was no mention of Adam possessing a mental illness.


TMZ has obtained the divorce docs between Peter and Nancy Lanza. The docs were filed in 2008 and the divorce became final the next year.

One thing’s for sure … the family was financially well off. Peter agreed to pay Nancy $240,000 a year in spousal support for 2010. The yearly spousal support was to increase each year. In 2012 Nancy was to receive $289,800.

There is no mention or indication of any mental health issues involving Adam. There is a boilerplate reference, “The wife shall pay for unreimbursed medical, surgical, hospital, optical and psychiatric, psychological, and nursing expenses…” It continues, “Each parent shall be entitled to complete information from any physician, dentist, psychologist, consultant, or any specialist attending the children.”

It’s important to note … the provisions (above) are standard and do not reflect specifically on this divorce.

And, in the docs, Peter agreed to buy Adam a car. Adam reportedly drove his mom’s car to Sandy Hook Elementary school before going on his rampage.
