Some people go a little too extreme with what they want after a divorce. But these demands are just plain savage and incredibly selfish!
Why She Cut Off Contact With Her Mother
“My parents are currently going through a divorce. Luckily, kids are all in late 20s/30s, so no custody battle, but basically, my mum is a nutter and is desperately trying to play my dad as much as humanly possible.
She told her lawyer that he has many hidden assets, when in fact he has none. She lied and told the mediator that he has a record collection worth hundreds of thousands, when in fact it’s probably worth like £8,000. She said his guitar collection was worth tens of thousands, whereas second-hand value, like maybe £2,000. She wants all of his businesses assets. All of them. She wants both houses. Her lawyer repeatedly reminds her that at most she’d get half of everything, but she doesn’t listen. Then she demanded back all of our (the kids) Christmas and birthday presents, from our childhood, like the violin they bought me when I was 13 years old. It’s hers. Obviously. Her lawyer laughed at her and reminded her that’s not how divorce works.
They’re still in the early mediation process, so it’ll be interesting to see how things go, once they get started properly.
Interestingly, despite her hollering that it’s all my dad’s fault, she was the one that walked out, and subsequently shacked up with my dad’s brother, WHO’S WIFE HAD DIED THREE WEEKS EARLIER. Yeah, and that’s why I’m not in contact with my idiot of a ‘mother.'”
The House His Grandma Gave Him
My dad’s grandma gave him a house when he turned 18 years old. Great. Well, my dad and mom met, had me, and got married two years later. House is now dad and mom’s and mom promised she’d never do anything if they split.
Fast forward eight years into their relationship. Divorce happens. Mom forces dad to stay away, moves another man into the house, forces dad to take out a loan and give her half in order to ‘buy’ the house back and for her to go on.
My dad was in financial ruin for years.”
Cheating Wife Caused Him To Lose Everything!
“A now ‘ex-friend’ of mine, cheated on her husband while he was away at school (military). She decided to tell me about it. Two days later, I got this frantic phone call at 5:30 a.m., saying that she and her kid needed a place to stay the night because her husband had caught her having an early morning phone conversation with the friend with benefits. Within 12 hours, she had a court-issued restraining order, claiming that he had beaten on her a few times. Except that I was friends with her husband as well. He’s the most peaceful, non-violent person I’ve ever met, and is quite a pushover.
This guy is being walked from his house by police. He also isn’t allowed within 50 feet of the house or her or his own kid. Cops gave him ten minutes to pack a bag and get out. For the next three months, he’s living out of this bag, moving from house to house, crashing with friends. Meanwhile, his house that he’s not allowed anywhere near, isn’t even occupied because his wife and kid are living with her friend with benefits.
Eventually, he gets himself together and starts taking her to court for custody and divorce. Everything slowly starts coming to light. When things start going south for her, she claims he violated her. The judge calls out her nonsense, but the military doesn’t, and they open up a full-blown investigation. The guy is a CID (Criminal Investigation Command) agent. He investigates those types of cases for a living. But with her accusation, he loses his badge and his weapon and gets pulled from every case he was on. Becomes a glorified door greeter. The investigation takes so long that his reenlistment window closes and he’s forced to get out, after ten years of service.
He actually managed to get full custody of his kid and the charges were dropped. But all he’s ever wanted to be is a cop and now as a civilian, he’s having a difficult time getting a job because all they see is that he was charged at one point in time. He’s had to sell his motorcycle and refinance his truck just to make ends meet.”
Living Like A ‘Real Housewife’?
“I currently have a client who makes a sizeable annual salary, north of $200,000. His spouse has separated but will not leave the matrimonial home, despite her overtures that she wants to become independent.
She has actively depleted the joint bank account of hundreds of thousands of dollars, which she has siphoned into personal bank accounts which she uses to finance her lifestyle of expensive yoga classes, buying luxury purses and shoes, eating at fine dining establishments, and spending recklessly to deplete her net family property.
She was taking every penny that he deposited from his paycheck on the advice of her lawyer, which she then used to pay for her lawyer. He was financing opposing counsel. That has now stopped.
She will not allow him to see the kids when he comes home from work or even read them bedtime stories – but that’s not even the worst of it all!
