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.

Q:Why do divorces cost so much?
A: Because it's worth it.

Her lawyer actually ended up giving me a better deal than mine was trying for, lol. Guys, if any of you ever have to go through this, make your lawyer your best friend.

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.

My lawyer had a philosophy like mine. Have as much ammo as you can, but you don't necessarily have to fire it. A cheap lawyer is far more expensive than a pricey one.

It does show the worst of people. I wasn't innocent either.

Man, I wish I had taken that advice. I got a guy that was known for compromise because I am a reasonable man, and he let them roll over us. I finally fired him, and finished the negotiation on my own. I recovered a lot, but started from a weak position.

No wonder lawyers are rich.
Like I said, a good one always will cost less than a cheap one. The important thing is to find one you have chemistry with, because this is the person who, for all intents and purposes, will be fighting for your life.
