Sometimes, things can get extreme during a divorce, and we can turn the tables. When a spouse had our client arrested, we partnered with his criminal defense attorneys to get the charges dismissed.
At the final divorce trial, we convinced the Judge that the spouse had “embellished stories to the police and Magistrate Court” and had “wrongfully and knowingly endorsed and cashed three checks belonging to” our client. The spouse had also removed all the furniture from the marital residence.
The Judge ordered the spouse to pay our client back in fifteen (15) days and return the furniture. When the spouse asked for half the equity in the marital residence, alimony, and half of our client’s retirement account, the Judge said NO.
