Deviousness in Divorce Proceedings is Not a Good Idea
The appeal court heard an appeal this week brought by a husband who didn’t like the financial settlement given by the court to his wife. The parties were wealthy, with a luxury lifestyle. The wife received the lion’s share of liquid assets due to the husband’s deviousness within the divorce proceedings.
When to use a Post-it note and when not…
At the family court last year the judge commented that the case was amongst the most acrimonious he had ever come across and that the husband’s behavior within the home had been designed to drive the wife out of it.
The husband had installed CCTV within the house to monitor what his wife was doing, locked internal doors and left post-it notes on work surfaces saying ‘clean me’.
The outcome of the appeal hearing is yet to be pronounced but the lessons from this are likely to be:
- deviousness in divorce proceedings is not a good idea,
- CCTV within the house is a definite ‘no’ and
- think twice before you spread post-it notes with your thoughts liberally about.
