Dating during divorce child custody
She told the judge that my client was 'just a friend who I let take her to the store sometimes.' When pressed as to whether they had ever had 'intimate relations' she said yes, but [not vaginal intercourse].When further pressed for who the biological father was, she said 'Some guy.' 'Well, what was his name? ' 'I don't know his last name.' Of course we demanded a DNA test, and of course it came back positive.The look on her husband's face when she walked into his deposition looking like a supermodel was priceless.Feeling newly empowered, she was able to take the steps to face her husband in court and ultimately prevail in the proceedings." "Several years ago I represented a dad in a divorce and custody case.Ultimately, the judge did not believe her and we ended up settling on joint custody." "My client had been the primary at-home parent for his young daughter.When the breakup happened, his daughter's mother tried saying that he wasn't the girl's father.I was successful, but ultimately his wife—who was previously unaware of the girlfriend or the cocaine habit—found out." — "I had a client who was divorced, and remarried, and his child was in middle school. Right after report cards came out, his ex-wife showed up at his door, complained to him about their son's grades, and then hauled off and punched him in the face!
Since she wouldn't agree to settle, we had to go to trial even though it was a clear-cut case.
The husband and wife were actually charged in a hundred-something-count indictment because they stole identities of other licensed doctors to submit invoices and information to various companies so they could get reimbursements for supplies that never existed.
The husband used his portion of the profits, nearly million, on his girlfriend.
Additionally, they had a fair amount of cocaine with them.
As soon as I find out the details, I got down on my hands and knees and begged the assistant district attorney to limit the facts of the case that were said in court.
In court, the mom admitted that she never saw the children and that she sent threatening messages to the dad, and then went on to threaten me in open court.
