I’m afraid spouse would litigate, rather than negotiate, divorce, if only to destroy me financially (spouse is in much better personal financial situation than I am through savings, gifts, etc.). In very general terms–
barring anything egregious (fraudulent asset diversion, physical/mental abuse) and a relatively uncomplicated marital situation, do litigated divorces tend to deviate much from established principles, specifically in ED (i.e., division of marital property= 50/50)? How much do character issues (whether true or not), and the who-really-paid-for-what arguments (whether true or not) affect the outcome?
If it can be shown that spouse/spouse’s attorney are maliciously prosecuting (i.e., baseless motions, excess paperwork), can these things be halted by court order and can I expect to recover my costs if they’re detrermined to be malicious?
Thanks-- this is a great and comforting service you offer here
