I purchased mine last June and from time to time, I re-read the divorce decree just to make sure it's real. On rare occasions I have nightmares that the divorce did not happen. I wake up screaming and need a shot of Old Grandad to calm down.
Ugh...My lawyer was a wimp, and I am paying for it. This is NOT the time to be a nice guy. I was, and it cost me. I can hold my head high, and know I was honorable and more than fair, but I got hosed due to poor counsel.
Get the meanest, nastiest lawyer you can find. If you don't, she will.
Man, you guys are lucky!! 18 1/2 years here and would to get a divorce, but I have an Autistic 12 year old son and gonna suffer it out for 5 years 3 months more until he is 18. I love my son and would take a bullet for him, my wife, that would be 50/50 as of right now. The lawyer advice is good advice for sure.
Congrats on finalizing things and it does pay to have a rulthless lawyer.
Went through that ordeal almost 10 years ago.
It was probably one of the best things that ever happened to me but at the same time really showed me the ugly side of human nature.
I was about ready to puke when we all had to get together to go over things and it was also the last day I ever saw her. Not that I am complaining.
I would not wish that experience on anyone.
