  1. So....in the end, what did your divorce and custody battle end up costing? So far mine has been $16k with the latest bill and here is what I have gotten for it: Being dragged to custody court twice, once after the insane therapist accused me of parental alienation for missing one visit and asking that one other be rescheduled...after dutifully taking S15 there for almost a year and giving son to DE pretty much whenever he wanted. Ended up having to make a formal complaint with the State (all the therapist stuff alone was $2k in lawyers fees) Slapped with a contempt petition for a whole bunch of nonsense which we had to answer. Being dragged to domestics twice. Once having to appeal because the gave the man (and I use the term very loosely) who made $140K a mortgage deviation even though I made $13K at the moment (plus support). Cost of the appeal, $3k. Two discovery and settlement conferences which got us nowhere. Plus lots of back and forth between lawyers. My lawyer repeatedly asking for information the court ORDERED him to give me.....I finally got SOME of the stuff I needed in January....court said to get it to me by the prior May. Now, we made a settlement offer in April which he never even had to courtesy to answer, much less counter offer. At the end of November DE's attorney said they wanted to push forward and we again asked for an answer and/or counter offer and then possibly mediate. His response? Go straight to the court and ask for it to go through there. There will be a settlement conference next month (which will go nowhere since he still says all of the business money is his and has proceeded to add a pack of lies, half-truth, deceptions and double dipping to the "evidence") so my lawyer said we go to that, then another one, then the Master tells us what she thinks I should get and when he doesn't like it (she already said what she thought back in April.....and he REALLY didn't like it), then it goes to trial (with the same master) and if he still doesn't like it, then it goes to a judge. I was told another 6 to 8 K.....but judging from how it has gone with the estimates so far, it will be more like 10 to 12K at least. And the worst part it, I am helpless......my attorney said once he goes to the court, we HAVE to cooperate. So, my choices are go through this, or take whatever pitance HE deems me worthy of. On the way out the door he told me I would get no more than 50% of what HE says are marital assets (and he says I get none of the business, he counts our daughter's car as mine, and he even wants to count the tuition trusts for the children (purchased with my mother's inheritence) as my assets....in other words, he would give me almost nothing. And every time he does something really nasty, he makes sure to write and tell me how he was doing just what he promised. So ladies and gentlemen......how much did yours cost in the end? I have friends who got out for less than $5K........how I envy them. TooLong
