I just got another batch of documents from my ex-wife. They are mostly boring financial papers. At least she has finally written down a legal theory for her position at the trial next Monday. The essence is that she wants my house because of some sort of breach of my fiduciary duty while I was building it ten years ago.
She sue for divorce five years ago. I think that it is a little late to be making these claims. The claims have no merit. Monday's trial should extinguish these claims once and for all.
I hope so, anyway. She ends her brief by saying that she requests the Court to reserve jurisdiction for more property issues that she might want to raise in the future. Sigh. There does not seem to be any end to her claims. We have had five years of court battles already, and no end is in sight.
A reader asked how it was that court issues were still pending when we got divorced so long ago, and was frustrated by my inability to give him a good answer. There is no good reason for a divorce case to last so long. It appears that the family court judges are willing to entertain demands from my ex-wife for as long as she wants to submit complaints about me. I don't know why.
