Divorce is a difficult process and it is often made more so by the hostility between the parties which reaches an all-out war at times. While this is absolutely unnecessary, it still happens because of the emotions involved and particularly so if there is a third party involved.
You often hear a friend talk about how he got a bad deal from the divorce court and lost everything. Many of these stories are a bit exaggerated, but when they are true it is likely due to several factors:
* The party didn’t loose everything but it feels like they did.
* Everything was in the other spouse’s name
* The judge was persuaded by an attorney to believe that most of the assets were created by one spouse and most should, therefore, be given to that spouse.
* A pre-nuptial agreement has been made.
