I am divorced!

My attorney just called me.

The judge awarded her a bit of alimony and a little more child support that we asked for... but nothing like she had been requesting.

My attorney said that I have a really strong case on appeal because the judge made an easily documentable error. I don't know if I will go that route because the amount of alimony is relatively small ($400 per month for 7 years) compared to the cost of an appeal ($10-20K).

Time to celebrate!

I'm SINGLE!!!

7(400x12) = $33,600

Are you sure you wanna give her this?
Nonetheless, congrats!!!

I am still processing what the ruling and what it means.

Arguments for the appeal:
1. My lawyer thinks that I will win
2. It will save me $400 per month for a total of $33,600

Arguments against the appeal:
1. It's a $10,000 cost up front, perhaps as high as $20,000 for a total cost
2. I might not win anyway
3. I am exhausted by all of this and maybe it is worth $400 per month to just have it all end

Just like the decision to R or D, there’s no need to hurry. See how you feel in a couple of weeks.

If the attorney is so sure, if he/she is so sure could he/she put something in writing stating that if the appeal is not successful he/she will reimburse you for his/her legal fees ? if not, don't do it, like you said, filing an appeal does not guarantee you will win it. In this case I would probably take the hit and save 10-20k for sure, not to mention the hassle and burden of going through the process again.

Time to celebrate your freedom ! Barcherlor ? (pun intended).

This made my night. I'm so happy for you Barcher.

Appeals are usually not that costly, if it is just a documentation or calculation error.

Congrats, I hope the fire burns less bright for you.

Woo hoo congratulations Barcher!

Sometimes it's better to pay more just to get it over with. Remember your time is worth something. My ex received equity re-embursement that she really didn't deserve since I purchased the house we lived in before we married with the down payment coming solely from my funds. . To fight that we would ended up paying attorneys just as much and drug the proceedings out for another six months.
