Steve Burton files for joint custody of his children with estranged wife Sheree Gustin… with divorce documents revealing they had no prenup

Just a day after it was revealed that General Hospital star Steve Burton filed for divorce from his estranged wife Sheree Gustin, new details have surfaced.

The 52-year-old actor filed for divorce in Orange County Superior Court on Friday, with people reporting that Burton and Gustin did not have a prenuptial agreement.

Burton has also filed for joint legal and physical custody of their minor children, son Jack, 16, and daughter Brooklyn, 7.

The actor, who also shares 18-year-old Makena Grace with Gustin, also asked the court to terminate both his and Gustin’s ability to request spousal support once the divorce is finalized.

The 52-year-old actor listed ‘irreconcilable differences’ as the reason for the split, listing March 1 as the date of separation.

Burton took to his Instagram story in May, revealing that he was separated from Gustin after she revealed she was expecting a child with another man.

‘I wanted to clear something up. Sheree and I are separated,’ Burton began to post on his Instagram story in early May.

‘She recently announced that she’s expecting her 4th child. The child is not mine,’ he added.

‘We are still co-parenting our three beautiful kids. We would appreciate privacy at this time. Much luv, Steve,’ he concluded.

The split also came months after it was revealed he was fired from his longtime role as Jason Morgan on the soap opera General Hospital, for refusing to comply with their COVID-19 vaccine mandate.

He started playing that role in 1991, winning a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actor In a Drama Series in 1998.

He ultimately left General Hospital in 2012 and landed at The Young And the Restless, where he won another Daytime Emmy in 2017.

He announced later that year that he would be returning to General Hospital, where he stayed until his firing in November.

A report from People that surfaced a few days after Burton announced the split said that Burton’s firing ultimately took a toll on the relationship.

‘Their lives were changed when he went through some upheaval and anger over what he considered his freedoms being in jeopardy,’ a source said.

‘He had to leave a show that he loved, which caused chaos in his life,’ the source added.
