“The divorce from hell, the battle for alimony and emptied pockets”

by Walter Olson on April 15, 2013

At the Tampa Bay Times, Leonora LaPeter Anton relates the gruesome details of one high-conflict, protracted divorce — not a celebrity or a very-high-net-worth case, just a couple with some resources that can’t stop wrangling in court. The system may be labeled “no-fault,” but no one would imagine from this case that it lives up to that billing.

the article is long and depressing, like the divorce litigation..the ironic overlawyered quote is at the end though…the ex-wife has been in a car wreck, and is considering a lawsuit…

If only people would realize that compromise at the beginning of a divorce is almost always the best option. I’ll bet Muriel would love to go back and take the 65,000 a year that was offered to her in the beginning, and I’m sure Terry would have offered a bit more if he knew what he was in store for. Quite a statement at the end though, Muriel leaving only her wedding dress at the house.

This isn’t even as bad as it gets.

And the winner is … their lawyers.
