The former pair decided to end their 20-year-long marriage in 2003. While their divorce proceedings started in the early 2000s and their marriage legally ended in 2005, the divorce battle lasted for 12 long years.
Who is she married to now?
Marburg has kept her personal details out of the spotlight and nothing much is known about her. She made headlines following the messy divorce that went on for more than a decade. Besides this, she has not shared any details about her personal and professional life.
Meanwhile, Wolf went on to marry his third wife, actress Noelle Lippman in June 2006, with whom he now shares two children, daughter Zoe Amelia Wolf, born on September 21, 2007, and son Rex Wolf, born on March 2, 2010.

What is her net worth?
While Marburg's net worth has not been revealed, it is estimated at $22 million. Much of her net worth comes from the divorce settlement. Dick and Christine reached a settlement in 2003, and she walked away with $17.5 million in cash, their house in Maine, and annual spousal support of $2 million for eight years.
However, the big part of their settlement was the value of Law & Order since Marburg was legally entitled to half the value of the show. During the negotiations, the show's value was estimated at just $8 million. But Christine alleged that her ex-husband was working on a new billion-dollar deal with NBC for Law & Order secretly.
Marburg mentioned that she only came to know about it after signing the divorce settlement just a few months later. This led her to take the case to court, claiming that Dick had concealed assets. After years in California's court system, Christine lost an appeal in 2016 after the judge dismissed all of her claims. Dick Wolf's net worth is estimated at a staggering $550 million as of 2021.
