Finally Divorced

I know I have been the invisible man for a while, but I thought I'd let some of the Old School gang know that after 2.5 years I'm finally divorced. What a fucked up ride and the sharks are still fighting over $$$. This has cost over $200 large and we havenít even got to final division of assets, maintenance and child support. Technically it is a bifurcated divorce and Iíll be in court through December on that. Aside from marrying the wrong woman, Iíve done nothing wrong and have pretty much agreed to any reasonable request. The divorce system in IL and Kane county is broke. If you run into a asshole attorney who thinks he can bleed you and a GDB who thinks she is godís gift to man, you are going to be hosed. Of course, my business is still slow with this wonderful economy despite me working my ass off. Hopefully I wonít need to go Chapter 13 to get out from under all the unreasonable costs, but it would serve my ex right if I did as the feds trump state every day. In the short haul, it has pretty much ruined my life and made Bruce a very dull boy. I just hope it doesnít mess up my daughterís life as well. My ex has used her as a huge lever.

Hope everyone is having a good summer.

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.

Um, congrats?

Seriously though, financial stuff just takes time. Being free of a bad situation is worth it.

Why is divorce so expensive?

It's worth it.

Seriously - Congratulations... keep the faith - kids aren't stupid and will figure out the truth in time. And you can always make more money - just don't give up.

Holy shit... 200k for the first half of bifurcated divorce??? Ouch!

But I guess when it's all said and done you probably will end up happier than dealing with someone you don't want to be with or vise versa.

Thanks guys.
Despite the hell she has put me through, would you believe I still shed a couple tears in court? Unreal.
The bad thing about the cost is that 90% of it was wasteful and unnecessary. We could each be $125k ahead and I wouldn't be struggling to keep up with expenses. Her South Barrington Bitch friends sent her to a shark who told her what she wants to hear and just ended up fucking everthing up. I'm a pretty good guy and straight as an arrow. This is my second divorce and I've done well for X-1. 17 years later and I'm still giving X-1 $. She knew that. I pleaded to go to mediation right out of the gate and was told "that isn't the way it's done". In the end, she will get the same income as if we went to mediation. Stupid stupid stupid...

BTW, a beer and a ride sounds good, but not at the same time. I finally killed the battery on the 929 so it's just sitting on the pitbulls. Right now I don't want to spend the cash on insurance and tags. I'm hoping to get the old beasty out next summer. All I'm doing for fun these days is walking over to Randall Oaks Golf Course which is 5 houses down and flashing my season pass. Well that and drinking cheap beer with my friends and golf buddies. Just call me Mr. Excitement...

Tony, I did manage to keep the Vette. My partner offered to take over the note and I can pay him back whenever I get back on my feet. He didn't want to see me lose it because of the bitch. I'm hoping to be back on my feet within 2-3 years. Keep your fingers crossed.

Very glad you still have the Vette, that is a beast of American engineering.


Yeah, I believe you shed some tears in court, you're a good dude, Bruce. Divorce sucks, even when there are some really hard feelings you are reminded that at one time you two were in love.

But since this is #2 you know that you will move on, and life will get better.
