first thing lawyers want to know
when interviewing them about representing
you in a divorce is what are your
assets? This is because they want
to know how much they can bleed
from you in the process. Many no
doubt have a formula as a percentage
of your net worth in their own heads
of what they hope to take along
the way. I know one person with
a prenup who is already $500,000
in the hole and he had a prenup
that should have simplified the
process. You will get "serviced"
along the way until you are out
of money fighting for your children
and then they will recommend settling,
which you could have done in the
first place without their help.
The family court and divorce lawyers
are in the BUSINESS of leading you
to slaughter and are in a conspiracy
of silence with the judges, GALs
and all other leeches that make
their outrageous livings off the
misery of divorcing families. What
is ironic is most do not enforce
or respect the law in any way and
are in fact breaking the law daily.
financial position you are put in
(especially with a restraining order
issued) is actually impossible to
survive unless you have significant
savings to draw upon. Your wife
will get 40% of your after tax income
(2 children average). With a restraining
order you will likely be forced
to continue to make all payments
on your house that she now has too.
Since mortgages are generally as
much as 50% of your take home that
leaves you 10% of your income to
live on on day one (before any divorce
court trial which may be 12 to 24
months away). In other words you
are totally screwed from the get
go and it is economically impossible
for you to win, or even put up a
good fight unless you do it by representing
yourself ("Pro Se").
Any additional money you make 26%
goes to her (40% after taxes are
calculated) and 10% goes to you.
You CAN NOT win. This is why the
courts are effectively forcing all
fathers into the cash economy or
to be criminals and lie about their
income. They can not personally
survive if they do not find some
way out of this financial spiral.
Add tens of thousands in lawyer
fees on top of this ridiculous situation
and your back is broken in no time
with your wife holding all the cards
for negotiations - game over - just
they way the judges and lawyers
like it - you have no chance to
even fight. The system eats you
alive by giving all your own income
to your wife!
ONLY STRATEGY THAT WORKS AND DOES
NOT FEED THE SYSTEM?
Pro se, as your own attorney seems
the only way to go unless you have
megabucks (literally). In this scenario
your wife is paying $200-$300 per
hour and you are not! :) It seems
like the only way to go due to this
natural course of events. In this
case the lawyers will at least want
to settle the case when she is out
of money or begins to understand
she is being had. While they
easily win, which is the standard
sexual bias of the courts, she will
do anything her lawyer says basically
- often including lying about things.
At least you have some negotiations
leverage during the settlement where
you would otherwise have NONE!
From what I can tell judges learn
the "real you" directly
this way because you are speaking
for yourself, and you might do better
because you can show him/her you are
being honest etc. Since the
lawyers suck anyway, and will basically
refuse to push hard for you because
of fear of the judge, you might as
well suck yourself, get more and not
pay the machine that eats you.
John Flaherty's course at the Liberty
Bell Union called "Taking Charge
of Your Case".:/This
$250 course (one hour of a lawyer)
can save you $20,000 to $50,000 in
legal fees or more and allow you to
fight the battle you should. You need
to clog up the system with valid complaints
and motions that you might not otherwise
be able to afford while they route
all your income to your wife.
exactly. It's a money making organized
crime operation for most lawyers and
judges. The more money you through
at it doesn't help. The lawyers are
looking for a "big" kill.
You're just chump change. Lunch money.
The more money you through at it,
the more powerful it gets. Then when
you run out of money, guess what?
Game's over. The ex-spouse wins.

Subject: Attorneys not disclosing
key facts and laws that hurt their
agree Mike. It is near impossible
to believe that lawyers don't know
this stuff when they work on it
full-time and we discover it easily.
Beside anyone bringing it before
the judge would ultimately educate
addition "ignorance of
the law is no excuse"
for an average person, so how can
it be for a lawyer??
The more I learn the more I am convinced
that this is basically a "conspiracy
of apathy", or a "conspiracy
of silence" - if no one
speaks up we all get rich stealing
a piece of every divorcing family's
estate -- and the more fight they the
richer we get. I won't tell your
screwing them, if you don't tell
them I am screwing them. Damn
the kids and the emotional and financial
devastation we cause along the way,
they are the ones who picked the
wrong spouse. You can always rationalize
anything, no matter how evil!
Disgusting isn't it!
