8 Of The Craziest Divorce Cases That Will Leave You Speechless. Wow.

Recently, a redditor asked users, “Lawyers of Reddit: What is the nastiest/craziest divorce case that you’ve handled?” People shared their most horrendous stories. Some are firsthand experiences, and others are overheard tales.

Source can be found at the bottom of the article.

1/8. A man came into the family law firm my friend was working in and says his wife was cheating on him. He’s extremely rich and wants to get divorced. The lawyer proceeds to ask him about his assets and what he wants to keep. He says that she can have the house, the car, the boat the kids etc. The lawyer asks him what he wants to keep then, given that he doesn’t seem to want anything.

The man angrily responds- “that bitch only loves her dog. I want her to suffer so I want the court to order that the dog be taken away from her and cremated. She can have 50% of the ashes and I’ll have the other 50%.”

Somehow this prince among men is getting divorced.

And despite the crazy, somehow I’m still interested in practising in family law.

2/8. My father was a divorce attorney and he was once called at his office by the husband of the woman he was representing. The husband said “You have ruined my life and I’m going to ruin yours, you better watch your little ones tonight.” My Dad stayed up most of the night with a baseball bat don’t think he even called the police.

3/8. I worked for a judge. 2 prominent local news people had a divorce. They filed mutual restraining orders against each other for “violence.” The filings were vague on details, but still somehow conveyed a sense of Shiloh or Antietam levels of blood.

When it came time for the hearing, it turned out the “violence” was spitting. More specifically, during a heated argument, flecks of spittle managed to touch the other party.

Judge denied the restraining orders, and both parties’ attorneys probably bought new yachts.

Such is justice.

4/8. My parents divorced was finalized September of 2014, but the separation of assets is still opened. The short of it is that my dad has always been really jealous, about 2 years ago my dad got it in his head that my mom was cheating with a baker/police officer in our home town (Mexico). He hired two guys to watch her 24/7, they confirmed that she was cheating and said they had a video…well $8k and my dad’s sanity later, there’s no video and my dad is mentally ill. He hired someone else to kill this baker/police officer, thankfully they too just took his money and did not kill him. He started going to brothels and sexually harassing women. He said he would leave my mom on the streets and has attempted to pay off judges. My dad was always a good hard working man, now he is someone I don’t know. Some say it’s a mid-life crisis, but the guy is 65 years old, I feel if it was a crisis it should’ve happened years ago.

TL;DR My dad thinks he lives in an Colombian Novela.

5/8. Here’s a story of a potential thwarted divorce case, told to me by our closing attorney.

Man and his fiancé are buying a house together. They get to the paper where you sign off on all your aliases. The woman has a full page of former names. The guy asks, “what is this?”

The woman non-chalantly says, “oh, I’ve been married five times before.” The guy gets up and walks out. Needless to say they did not buy the house or stay together.

6/8. I just had lunch with a lawyer friend of mine and he told me this crazy story: when he was an intern there was this divorce case where the woman was demanding her husband for child support. It was in a small city in Bolivia’s highlands and both the husband and wife were shepherds. Anyways, the husband asked the judge for a medical examination of his genitalia, turns out the “husband” was actually a woman. She was raised by her grandparents and they respected her preferences, for the rest of the community she was a boy. After her grandparents died she inherited the land and after sometime the neighbor offered her to marry his daughter (without knowing the guy was actually a girl). She accepted and once she was married she came to an agreement with her wife: they will be married but they won’t have sex. After a while the wife got a lover and had three kids; the husband took them as his/her own. Some years passed and the relationship got really deteriorated so the husband asked for a divorce, things got ugly and she ended up telling the true in order to avoid paying child support.

7/8. I had a few.

One guy had his wife served with the divorce papers while she was in the hospital undergoing cancer treatment. She had no idea he wanted a divorce.

One guy wanted a provision in his divorce that said his sons couldn’t watch NASCAR because the wife’s new boyfriend was into NASCAR.

In the same case, the property division was so contentious that the judge had the parties list every piece of furniture in the house and try to work through who would get what. The guy made sure that he wanted everything she did, down to things like lace doilies her grandma made and some trophy she won in a women’s shooting competition (“I bought her the gun so its pretty much my trophy”).

Another guy wanted no custody and no visitation with his four sons until he learned how much child support would be. Then he wanted full custody with no visitation for the wife in the hope that she’d have to pay him child support.

I only did divorces for about a year before I moved on to mortgage foreclosures. Those are far less depressing.

8/8. I interned for a small family law firm in Virginia last summer and had two really odd stories:

1. This attractive lady came in seeking a divorce. Before divorcing, she and her husband moved into a house in the Virginia mountains with her parents, as they were re-locating to from Florida to Virginia to start their relationship over and had not found a new place to live yet (she had found his personal classified ads on craigslist, if I remember correctly). Well, shit keeps hitting the fan. And he kicks her out. Of her parents house. You read that correctly.

2. Another crazy story was surrounding a mid-40’s couple that got remarried; all of their children from their respective first marriages were grown up. Anyways, they decide to adopt three kids from some African county. At first they think the 2 girls and 1 boy are brother/sister, but end up being 2 sisters and a cousin. The kids had apparently seen some awful shit back in Africa. All their parents were dead or drug addicts, etc… Anyways, they all have terrible manners that they won’t fix. Eating with their hands at the table, bad hygiene, obnoxious, etc…. However, the really sad part was the older girl (around 11-12 years old). She was sexually assaulted/raped in Africa, and she had become sexually reactive. This means she was masturbating all the time, in public, and even once made her sister perform oral sex on her, which the mother found them doing in the bathtub. A really sad story.

Misdemeanors related to car accident

Misdemeanors related to car accident can become a problem if not handled correctly and lead to jail time, having Attorney Representation is important. If we watch the case of Terrell Suggs we will see just have important good representation is in a case like this.

 

Terrell Suggs charged with two misdemeanors related to car accident

Terrell SuggsAPRavens linebacker Terrell Suggs was arrested in Arizona after a one-car accident earlier this month and released a statement a short time later saying that a suspended driver’s license was the reason for the arrest.

That’s not the only charge that Suggs will face as a result of the accident, however. Suggs has been charged with both driving with a suspended license and failure to notify authorities after striking a fixture, which was the median that he hit with his car. Suggs told police he may have fallen asleep before the accident and was not found to be impaired by drugs or alcohol.

TMZ reports that the charges, both of which are misdemeanors, can result in jail time. The suspended license charge can lead to up to six months behind bars while the failure to notify charge carries a maximum penalty of 30 days in jail.

Suggs will likely find a way to resolve the case without being incarcerated for more than half a year. He could be disciplined under the personal conduct policy as well.

Malibu DUI Checkpoint

Malibu DUI Checkpoint

Community: #LASD Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s Malibu/Lost Hills station DUI/CDL Checkpoint Planned for This Weekend

dui7

Malibu, CA – The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s Traffic Services Detail will be conducting a DUI/Driver License Checkpoint on Friday, March 4, 2016, at an undisclosed location within the City of Malibu, between the hours of 7:00 p.m. and 3:00 a.m.

 

The deterrent effect of DUI checkpoints is a proven resource in reducing the number of persons killed and injured in alcohol or drug involved crashes. Research shows that crashes involving an impaired driver can be reduced by up to 20 percent when well-publicized DUI checkpoints and proactive DUI patrols are conducted routinely. DUI Checkpoints are placed in locations based on collision statistics and frequency of DUI arrests, affording the greatest opportunity for achieving drunk and drugged driving deterrence. Locations are chosen with safety considerations for the officers and the public.

 

In California, this deadly crime led to 867 deaths and over 23,000 serious injuries in 2013 because someone failed to designate a sober driver.  Nationally, the latest data shows over 10,000 were killed by an impaired driver. Over the course of the past three years in the contract cities policed by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, DUI collisions have claimed 33 lives and resulted in 898 injury crashes causing 1330 injuries.

 

Deputies will be looking for signs of alcohol and/or drug impairment with officers checking drivers for proper licensing delaying motorists only momentarily.  When possible, specially trained officers will be available to evaluate those suspected of drug-impaired driving, which now accounts for a growing number of impaired driving crashes.

 

Recent statistics reveal that 30 percent of drivers in fatal crashes had one or more drugs in their systems.  A study of active drivers showed more tested positive for drugs that may impair driving (14 percent) than did for alcohol (7.3 percent).  Of the drugs, marijuana was most prevalent, at 7.4 percent, slightly more than alcohol. Everyone should be mindful that if you’re taking medication – whether prescription or over-the-counter – drinking even small amounts of alcohol can greatly intensify the impairment affects.

 

Law Enforcement emphasizes the preventable nature of drunk driving reminding everyone that all it takes is a little planning ahead. Designate a sober driver or call a cab. But whatever you do, don’t drink and drive. The California Office of Traffic Safety DDVIP (Designated Driver VIP) mobile app is now available for free download on iOS and Android devices. Launched last year, the new DDVIP app offers enhanced features, allowing users to “Map a Spot” with their current location to find DDVIP partnering establishments in their area or a “List of Spots” to search all participating bars and restaurants throughout California. Users will be offered free incentives at each bar to celebrate their life saving role.  They can stay up-to-date with the latest from DDVIP and see what other users are saying via its social tab. Also through the app, for those who want to imbibe but also make it a point to plan ahead, users can easily order a sober ride from Uber, Lyft or Curb – all from one screen.

 

Drivers caught driving impaired can expect the impact of a DUI arrest to include jail time, fines, fees, DUI classes, other expenses that can exceed $10,000 not to mention the embarrassment when friends and family find out.

 

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), checkpoints have provided the most effective documented results of any of the DUI enforcement strategies, while also yielding considerable cost savings of $6 for every $1 spent.  Nearly 90 percent of California drivers approve of DUI checkpoints.

 

Funding for these operations is provided to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety http://www.ots.ca.gov/ through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration http://www.nhtsa.gov/, reminding everyone to ‘Report Drunk Driver – Call 9-1-1.

 

AS A DRIVER, PLAN AHEAD WITH THESE TIPS:

Arrange rides home for your friends, family, co-workers and yourself before the drinking begins

Identify and provide free non-alcoholic drinks or other promotional items to the Designated Driver

Party hosts and servers must limit drinks to your guests or patrons. Don’t serve more than one or two over several hours.

Cut back on the amount of drinks you plan to bring to the party – and provide plenty of food.
