So my brother is divorcing his wife of 20+ years. They've dated since they were in the 7th grade, but she hasn't slept with him for four years, and promised she would divorce him once the kids went to college. He said, "Why wait" and got things rolling for a divorce. They have two kids. A boy who is 14 and a girl who is 11. My brother has already purchased a house only 3 miles away from their current house (so the kids can stay in the same schools) and he'd like to have the kids split time evenly between the two households (until they go to college). My brother will pay for 100% of college, he'll pay for both houses, he'll pay for her car, he'll pay alimony and child support. Basically, he's still paying for everything. He makes a good living. It's not enough for her. She refuses to split time evenly with the kids and is forcing them to go to court where she will have THE CHILDREN TESTIFY that my brother is a bad father. He's not. He spends all of his time either working or playing with the kids. That's all he does. So here's why they're going to court: * If she gets her way, he has to give her an extra $200 per month in child support. In her infinite wisdom, she has racked up $12,000 in legal bills (so far) in an effort to secure $2,400 per year in extra support money. By the time the court wrangling is over, she'll be in debt to her attorney for over $15,000 in an effort to get that $2,000 per year. The kids will be long gone by the time she breaks even on her efforts. WTF is wrong with people?
