Shares Joint Custody After Separation With Wife Of 17 Years
Richard got married to Alma Gonzales on Valentine's Day, 1975.
In 1992, after remaining married for a long duration of 17 years, Richard's wife filed for divorce stating irreconcilable differences. The pair eventually separated legally on 22 June 1993. The former pair got joint custody of their children, with the kids staying every other week with their father.

A source close to Alma revealed that she had made up her mind to split back in March 1992. Even the presence of four lovely children couldn't save their marriage from tearing apart.
Their firstborn, a son by the name of Richard Francisco, was conceived in 1976. On 26 August 1981, Alma gave birth to triplet-girls, namely Barbara Ayala, Gweneth Gonzales, and Pilar Alma.

More than a year of his divorce to Alma, Richard tied the knot with Georgiana Bischoff on 20 November 1994 in the Los Feliz section of Los Angeles. The marriage was second for Richard, while it was the third time for Georgiana.
The event was accompanied by about 50 guests, mostly blood relatives. Richard's son, Richard Francisco, served as the best man, whereas his triplet daughters took the role of bridesmaids along with Georgiana's daughters from previous marriages.

The pair first met in 1992 when Georgiana was recently coming out of a divorce. His second wife, Georgiana Bischoff, is a descendant of the Pueblo Indian Tribe.
