Pedro Argote divorce case
Argote is said to be going through a divorce, but details on the case are unclear.
Wilkinson signed an order saying there was to be no visitation or contact between Argote and his children, or their mother, according to the partial judgment in the divorce case cited by The Herlad-Mail.
The judgment also granted Argote’s ex-wife “sole use and possession of the family home” and barred the husband from entering the property.
Argote has been ordered to pay the woman child support of $1,120 a month for their four minor children, according to the court document.
