    Do you have an exit plan?

    I have had this twice, where the man become a woman during the divorce. Had many where one party decided they were gay. Others where one had some bizarre fetish. In the early 90's I had a bunch of cases where the parties engaged in threesomes and then the marriage went to hell. One day I walked...

    Do you have an exit plan?

    The simple reality is that at least 50% of all marriages end in divorce. So, marriage is the number one cause of divorce. Perhaps one doesn't enter into a marriage with the thought that it may end in divorce, but one must accept the reality of the institution. As we get a bit older and/or...

    Do you have an exit plan?

    LR2 and Uncle Dave bring up some good general info. However, the devil is in the details. For California only: 1. As a general proposition, a marriage of 10 years is usually deemed a long term marriage, but it isn't absolute. Case law holds that a marriage of 7 years can be deemed a long term...

    Do you have an exit plan?

    "Exit Plans" I actually have a pamphlet that I prepared respecting this issue. I made a lot of money helping people prepare an EP. I can't even estimate the numbers of folks who came to my office who were literally in a shell shocked state of mind. If I had a dime for every time I heard, "I...

    Do you have an exit plan?

    The longest was just under 60 years and the shortest was one day. Cheers, Steve

    Do you have an exit plan?

    When I get a moment, I will comment on this issue. Being a divorce attorney for over 30 years has given me a unique perspective. Cheers, Steve

    Getting serious: Cancer, So a year ago today

    Stay strong. My life changing moment was July 19, 2019. The C club is no bueno. Sounds like pkbullet and I have something in common. Things are going good. Stay positive and surround yourself with positive people. Damn, sounds like we need a "C" club support group. Cheers, Steve

    Army Lt. traffic stop

    In regards to your first sentence, I would be willing to bet your wrong. I don't think this was this guys first rodeo. Interestingly enough, one of the statements from his attorney was that the LT is not doing well and he is concerned that this will affect his military career. This causes my...

    Army Lt. traffic stop

    I have been vacillating on whether to say anything. IMO, this guy wasn't a dumbshit, he was a man with an agenda. I have been seeing this since the 80's. If you are not familiar with who Long Beach Officers Dickey and Ramsey were, then google it. I was in the office with their defense attorneys...

    Shooting in office building in Orange county

    It is a very unfortunate situation. However, since it took place in Orange County, my old buddy Todd will prosecute the MF in an aggressive fashion and depending on the facts, may seek the death penalty. Unlike that disgusting waste of flesh DA in Los Angeles who would be more interested in...

    12 hours until the fun starts

    I wish you the best and hope for a quick and healthy recovery. My last spine surgery was around 16 hours. The first 3 weeks were tough, but got better as time went bye. Cheers, Steve

    1/2 hour sitcoms

    I can't watch anything with commercials. My wife watches a few shows and I have to leave as it pisses me off. The commercials have a particular trend that drives me crazy. Can't even watch my old time favorite shows due to the "commercials." I turn on a movie channel or do Netflix or on demand...
