Can You Make Crazy Demands in a Divorce Settlement?

If you want to avoid litigation and a drawn-out trial, you have considerable freedom as you draft your divorce settlement. But just how “creative” can you get when you draft your agreement? In the end, the possibilities are essentially limitless. You and your spouse can decide on the best way to handle any disputes over subjects like property division, child custody, child support, and alimony. As we have seen in the past, many people have made all kinds of crazy demands when going through a divorce – and this shows just how easy it is to “make your own rules” during a collaborative divorce. 

While there are many possibilities when you choose to handle your separation outside of court, you still need a guiding hand from an experienced lawyer to help you avoid mistakes and strive for the best possible results. It is best to get in touch with an attorney at your earliest possible convenience. 

Dividing the Family Home – Literally

According to USA Today, one couple in Cambodia literally sawed their home in half after getting divorced in 2008. It is not quite clear why they decided to do this, but apparently, the process was quite easy. 

Ordered to Pay Ice Cream Expenses

When a man in India got divorced, he was ordered by the judge to pay for his ex’s ice cream expenses for the next 23 years. This was seemingly retribution for the man’s claim that his wife was spending much of the family income on ice cream. 

The Return of the Kidney

During one marriage in the UK, a wife donated her kidney to her husband to save his life. But when they got divorced four years later, she demanded that he return her kidney. In New York, a similar situation resulted in a man requesting to be reimbursed the cash value of the kidney he had donated to his ex-wife. 

Man Somehow Ends Up With Goat After Divorce

Another notable story comes out of Australia, where a man was awarded a goat after divorcing his wife. It is unclear whether or not he actually wanted the goat, but apparently, he has adjusted to the situation quite well. Indeed, he reportedly takes the goat for daily walks.

I realized the true function of a lawyer was to unite parties riven asunder. The lesson was so indelibly burnt into me that a large part of my time during the twenty years of my practice as a lawyer was occupied in bringing about private compromises of hundreds of cases. I lost nothing thereby — not even money, certainly not my soul.
