I represented a very nice man in his divorce case. For our purposes we will call him "Norville." The friction was high as the couple slugged it out on many issues, including who would have primary custody of their two girls. Eventually we got all of the property division issues negotiated and settled. As part of the deal wife would keep the house, husband would get a buy-out payment, and he would go to the house on a scheduled Saturday morning to pick-up his clothes, his share of the furniture, etc.
At 10 a.m. on the appointed Saturday he drove up to the house to see a large banner hanging from the garage, and which read "Throw Norville Out of The House Party!". When he walked into the house he was greeted by his estranged spouse and six of her friends. The women were drinking mimosas, eating cake, and with his arrival, cat-calling and heckling Norville.
Being the better person, he maintained his decorum, got his stuff, and then left -- with his dignity obviously dented. Oh yes, I forget to mention, the wife decided to do all of this while the girls were with her at the house, during the party, on her custodial weekend.
Kizmit! We were in court on the case a few days later. My client filed an update with the court, including the details of the "party." Wife had her party. Dad had a hearing in front of the judge. Dad got custody of the kids.
The lesson to be learned? No one wins in a divorce. Don't make it worse by being ridiculous.
