Years ago, I used that phrase over and over about Divorce. Then it became stale because I used it too often. But, I need to get back to it.
This week, I was surprised by an opposing lawyer. I was in a Rhode Island Divorce Court for a conference with the Judge and the Wife's attorney. The wife's attorney had filed a Motion for support for an adult child of the marriage. He said that his client had told him that the adult daughter lived with her, was not currently working, that she had a brain tumor when she was a young child and the wife wanted support for this child from my client, the husband. I had to inform him that the child was over the age of 18, and had graduated college, worked a couple of part-time jobs and was currently actively seeking employment. He had failed to get that information from his client.
