New York style divorce litigation reaps explosive results

In an aptly titled article Real Estate and Rubble: When Marriages Go Awry , the New York  Times  stated:

“. . .[I]n New York, lawyers say, while blowing up a building is extreme, vindictiveness is not unusual. Divorce lawyers said they had seen pets killed and wives given theater tickets so their husbands could put their possessions on the street.”

“Some say such spiraling levels of anger, rage and eventually violence are a function of New York’s cumbersome divorce laws, which require one spouse to find fault with the other and thus encourage lawyers to keep the fight going as long as possible, spousal tensions rising all along.”

The Times continued: “If Las Vegas is the capital of instant divorce, New York City is the worldwide capital of unfathomably big awards and ferocious litigation. Think of Donald and Ivana Trump, Rudolph W. Giuliani and Donna Hanover, Jocelyne and Alec Wildenstein, Ronald O. Perelman and Patricia Duff”

The absence is of a true no-fault divorce is more than problematic. In the best cases, the absence of a no-fault divorce requires a party to perjure him/herself to state grounds to obtain a divorce.  In the worst cases, it gives license to the spouse against whom a divorce is sought to extort money and other concessions from spouse seeking the divorce. Opposition to the grounds for divorce is often withdrawn after the party seeking divorce gives in on some unrelated issue.

In cases where a party is unable or unwilling make some concession, the parties must, as the Times correctly points out, litigate. As the litigation progresses and the accusations and vitriol increase, it is only natural that the parties become more desperate and more despondent.

Dr. Bartha’s actions are inexcusable. But it is foreseeable that a person suffering from mental illness, thrust in a system that rewards conflict and confrontation, could, when faced with certain defeat, violently lash out with destructive force. Indeed, Dr. Bartha’s former lawyer portrays his client as being “ hounded by aggressive lawyers who stripped him of his dignity and everything he owned, taking his beloved house when he was too depressed to defend himself.”

Will adopting a no-fault divorce law end all destructive conduct in divorces? No. But a more liberal law will certainly ratchet down the acrimony that leads to these cruel and violent acts.

  1. Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword....wait there's even more Now what if i told you there was a simple Wordpress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That's right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. <a href="" rel="nofollow">Seo Plugin</a>

  3. I believe that avoiding processed foods could be the first step so that you can lose weight. They will often taste very good, but prepared foods include very little nutritional value, making you take more only to have enough power to get through the day. If you're constantly eating these foods, transferring to whole grain products and other complex carbohydrates will make you to have more power while eating less. Great blog post.

  32. Die multifunktionale Gofuture Tragejacke sorgt dafür, dass das Kleinstkind fein beschützt und kuschelig warm befördert werden kann. Dadurch kann die modische Tragejacke am Bauch sowie am Rücken getragen werden und muss kinderleicht lediglich übergeworfen werden. Nutzbar mit jedweder Trageeinlagen wie auch Tragetüchern. Beachtet werden muss, dass die Gofuture Tragejacken mit jeder Babytrage und jedwedem Tragetuch tragbar sind, aber keinen Substitut für eine Trage bezeichnen. Je nach Ermessen kann der Sprössling per Trageeinlage oder in Kombination mit dem Tragetuch am Bauch oder auch am Rücken befördert werden und ist in Folge dessen fortlaufend vor Wind und Wetter beschützt.

Ergo mag die modische Tragejacke am Bauch sowie am Rücken getragen werden und muss unproblematisch bloß übergeworfen werden. Verbindbar mit jeglicher Trageeinlagen wie auch Tragetüchern. Beachtet werden sollte, dass die Gofuture Tragejacken mit jeglicher Babytrage und sämtlichem Tragetuch kombinierbar sind, aber keinen Ersatz für die Trage bezeichnen. Je nach Belieben kann der Heranwachsende qua Trageeinlage oder in Verknüpfung mit dem Tragetuch am Bauch oder auch am Rücken getragen werden und ist dabei stets vor Wind und Wetter geborgen.
  34. Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!
