I Won! . . . But am not getting any money


Dear Twiceloser:

Greetings. Congratulations. I think the costs are really reasonable after 2.5 years - you are lucky it was not more. Congratulations and you are welcome for the advice!

The response posted above is based upon the limited factual information made available and is not intended as a full and complete response to the question. The only reliable manner to obtain complete and adequate legal advice is to consult with an attorney, fully explain your situation, and allow the attorney sufficient opportunity to research the applicable law and facts required to render an accurate opinion. The basic information provided above is intended as a public service but a full discussion with an attorney should be undertaken before taking any action.


The total cost was a little over $9,000, ±20 cakes,2 dozen Krispy Kremes, and 2 batches of chocolate chip cookies. I think total office weight gained was like 50 pounds.LOL

I agree with you. The cost was reasonable, and much less than the other party was asking.


After 2-1/2 years the court has decided that if it is in the water, has scales, fins, gills, and looks like a fish, it IS a fish! I refer to a prenuptial agreement and marital release of interest in real estate, signed and duly notorized by my former wife and myself.
A judge agreed with our motion for Summary Judgement, which basically means there are no material facts to be tried. Darn, I’m begining to sound like a lawyer. There is a slim chance of the decision being appealed, but I’m not worried about it being overthrown. I hope my Ex saves her money for her retirement.
My lawyer said we won, but having spent over $9,000 to prove what I have known all along, I really don’t feel victorious. I don’t think there is such a thing as a winner, except maybe the law firms, in any divorce proceeding. I hope the rest of you will some day enjoy the peaceful feeling that I now enjoy, and thanks for the great advice from Rosen Law Firm.
