One Man’s Successful Fight With His Ex-Wife in Divorce Court, and How You Can Utilize His Strategy
I’ve worked with thousands of fathers who have been rung through the court system while trying to settle and negotiate with their stubborn ex-wives. But the ones that trudge through divorce court agreeing with their ex-wives on every aspect of their settlement offers and the ones that think what the judge says is final, are the ones that haven’t truly fought for their right to a fair settlement, a child custody and/or support agreement that puts the kids first, or the division of mutual property that is fair and just. But one man worked his way through the father’s rights system and found that success was not too far out of reach for him–even with a hard-headed stubborn ex-wife that he immediately thought would take him to the cleaners!
This man started out by sending settlement offers by mail to his ex-wife. He outlined the issues that would need to be resolved, and offered honest, fair resolutions to each. Even though she wasn’t responding to his offers, he continually sent settlement letters urging them to mediate and negotiate on the terms outside of court. Instead of sitting back and assuming she wasn’t going to budge, this man decided to file a tort claim lawsuit against his ex-wife, her attorney, and various people that had testified against them. He sued them for defamation of character.
Although this may seem a little harsh, it showed that he was going to be persistent and pro-active throughout the court process, and in turn, made his ex-wife and her attorney realize that he wasn’t going down without a fight.
What happened from this was that he showed everyone that he was going to be pro-active in his fight for his rights with his children, his finances and his personal property. By laying down the law on those around him that were against him and his ideas, he ended up getting his ex-wife to agree to mediation. After about eight sessions of mediation, this father got what he wanted and more–he gained respect from those around him.
