Five strangest stories from lawyers.
Divorce is a terrible process in any case. Well, if one of the couple does not differ in adequacy, showdowns can turn into a real circus, informs Ukr.Media.
Blackmail by children
"I had a client whose wife wanted to kick him out of the house. I told him not to leave, but to just move to another bedroom for a while, because once he left, the chances of him coming back would be slim to none.
Then he wrote to his wife and said that he was staying at home. She called back and made it clear that she was not satisfied with this option. She began to threaten that if he did not pack his things soon, she would start taking out her anger on the joint children and would remind them every time that it was the father's fault who did not want to go.
He glued my sheets together!
"One couple was getting divorced, and the husband was going to leave home. The next morning, the girl went to work, and when she returned, her ex-husband was at home again within five minutes. Nothing surprising. He was gathering his things. But what she did not expect was that the "invisible" glue all her things together with superglue. The TV remote control is on the table, the phone is on the base, the sofa cushions are on the sofa, and the vacuum cleaner is on the carpet. She called the police and reported the property damage. The policemen walked with her around the house, documenting dozens of items glued to various things. And then she called them for several more days, asking them to add new cases to the report: "my tacks are stuck to the wall", "he glued all the sheets together!".
< p>Destruction of the family nest
"I have such a story! The wife did not appear at home for weeks. And then she still waited for her husband to go on a business trip, came in, opened all the faucets, plugged the drains, turned off the heating and left. It was 23 degrees of frost outside. When he returned five days later, the building had been destroyed. Even the foundation split because of the frozen water!
"I remember one horrible divorce that was just a nightmare at first, but things took a turn for the worse a year later when the girl started dating some guy who was allergic to cats.
Her ex bought a cat when the kids were with him. But it was not possible for the man to live with animals in the rented apartment, so he sent the children back together with the new pet and all his belongings. Obviously, the mother is angry, because she did not want a cat at all, and her boyfriend is also allergic. Calls us asking what to do because the kids are screaming saying she can't get rid of their new 'little brother'. Her ex told the kids, "if mommy loves you, she'll let you keep the cat.
< p>"Within five minutes, the ex-husband left his wife's favorite fish to die on the doorstep. Apparently, the value of these fish (there were only six of them) exceeded 100 thousand dollars. According to the woman's lawyer, she was so upset that she could not be present at the court. This could only happen in Los Angeles.
