Worst Divorce Case? I talk to Woman’s Day about the “Perfect Storm” of Divorce Cases

Victim
Perfect storm of a divorce

 

There are many things that can make a divorce case horrible: emotional or obsessive clients who were not emotionally or financially prepared for a divorce; domestic violence; vindictive spouses who just want to punish the other person; children who are caught in the middle and witness too much; and creative lawyer-ing that can involve many courts and run up the cost and time frame of the case.

This week I spoke to Woman’s Day about one of my worst divorce cases, it was a “perfect storm: everything that could go wrong did go wrong.” Of course some of the small details and names are changed to keep it confidential. Once my firm got involved, we ended up turning the tables and getting our client the best outcome.

Divorce rumors are stirring for Kim Kardashian and Kanye West following several public appearances in New York City last week where the couple traveled in support of West’s Yeezy 3 Fashion Show and a performance on Saturday Night Live. Photos of the couple around town are being characterized as stressful to say the least – no one is smiling.

Adding fuel to the fire, West’s various tweets during the week and prior to performing on SNL included a bomb that he is “53 million dollars in personal debt”. West also tweeted about Kylie Jenner’s endorsement with Puma, and claimed that Bill Cosby is innocent. Sources told Radar Online that Kardashian was not pleased with West’s recent behavior. Kardashian, meanwhile, posted a video on social media on February 14 that hinted of marital problems.

But both should have a reason to smile: his newly released album, despite the dubious lyrics aimed at Taylor Swift, is already garnering high praise.

Regardless whether the couple’s antics signal true marital problems or are simply more publicity ploys, in my experience as a divorce lawyer signs are pointing to the perfect relationship storm. To be clear, I am a divorce attorney but I do not represent Kardashian or West and I’ve relied on news media reports of their relationship. Here are the top 5 reasons Kimye’s marriage might be headed for an epic breakdown (and how you can avoid their mistakes):
