JERK!!!!!

JERK!!!!! Spectrum: My STUPID, SELF-CENTERED, SELF-IMPORTANT, EGOTISTICAL STBX has done it again!!!

Thanks to his ridiculous need to prove his significance to the world, my divorce could be dragging on for MONTHS.

.....And I want out NOW!!!!

He had to go out and hire some stupid $300 per hour lawyer who lives three hours away and could give two sh*ts about our piddling divorce. ::)

Today he called me because my first offer went out last week, but his lawyer was out on vacation the whole week so they didn't receive it. Now his lawyer is back, but "unavailable" for the entire week, and the STBX admits to me that other than his initial teleconference with the guy, he has never actually spoken to him or been able to get ahold of him. The only proof we actually have that his lawyer is working on it is that my lawyer says he has spoken to him!

In addition, his lawyer only took on the STBX on the condition that he would have to find a new lawyer if we actually have to go to court, because he doesn't want to come up here if it goes to trial.

Sooo..... His lawyer is unavailable until the 22nd. My lawyer is going out of town on vacation on April 4..... And the STBX goes back to the work (in the middle of nowhere) the first week of May. If the paperwork isn't done by then, who knows when this stupid thing will be final?

ARRRGH!!! >:( >:(

I feel for you Spectrum! Divorce is a royal pain in the rump and I want out NOW also.

I'm sure your attorney is doing his/her best to expedite the process. We will be here as long as it takes, so hang in there!
Big hugs,

 Re:JERK!!!!! picadilly: HUGS to you Spec.

Just be thankfull you don't have to wait one year of seperation before you can get divorced, thats how it is here in BC. Think happy thoughts & things will go your way, it's Karma. :P He'll get his.

& why hire a Lawyer that won't go to court for you? Your stbx must be missing a few cards short of a full deck. We know he's missing the Queen of Hearts. ;D

Be well.

 Re:JERK!!!!! newandconfused: That he hired a lawyer that won't go to court for him actually works in your favor--because his lawyer should be willing to do anything to settle this case. Now, since he's getting a heft dollar per hour rate, it may take some time, but hold tight to what it is you want--this lawyer wants to have the business and your STBX doesn't really want to pay any more than he has to, right??? This situation is probably best for you...(I assume this is a contested divorce, by the way)
