Aggressive Divorce Proceedings
In January, Lolita Grayson filed for divorce. She sought joint but primary custody of their four minor children, their home and equitable distribution of assets.
Grayson filed for an annulment against his wife instead of a divorce, on the basis that she was already married when he married her. His attorneys claimed she "represented herself as single in order to induce Mr. Grayson to marry her."
Grayson’s court filing also accuses Lolita Carson-Grayson of defamation, libel, slander and abuse of process. He also seeks exclusive use of the family’s home, their seven cars and attorney’s fees.
In July, Lolita Grayson said in a filed affidavit that she “was and still am of the belief I divorced in 1981,” which was well before their 1990 marriage. She said she signed divorce papers from previous husband Robert Carson in 1981, and denies the claim she participated in a 1994 divorce, as Representative Grayson claims.
