Former State Assemblyman and San Diego mayoral candidate Nathan Fletcher and his wife of more than 10 years are divorcing.
Court papers obtained by NBC 7 confirm that Nathan Fletcher filed for divorce on Jan. 13 and that the couple separated last Dec. 1.
The Fletchers were married in 2003 and have two boys, ages six and three.
In his petition for divorce, Nathan cited the couple’s “irreconcilable differences” as the legal grounds for ending their 11-year marriage.
In a statement released to NBC 7, the couple said, “We have made the best decision for our family. It is an amicable divorce and we remain good friends. Our first priority is our children and we hope that everyone will respect our privacy as we make this transition.”
