James Van Der Beek is now one step closer to freedom, reaching a settlement with his estranged wife to amicably end their seven-year marriage this week. Per court documents, the former Dawson's Creek star and McComb hashed out the deal through mediation. He agreed to pay $7,750 a month until 2013. Heather McComb, a onetime Party of Fiver who has guested on CSI and Prison Break, currently earns just $1,750 a month. The Beek? $35,000. Damn.
The actor will also retain possession of the couple's Hollywood home and keep residuals from his acting career and various projects/screenplays he's optioned/written. Van Der Beek and McComb, 32, tied the knot in July 2003. He filed for divorce late last year citing irreconcilable differences. The couple does not have any children.
