If you are thinking about getting a divorce in Palm Beach County, Florida, it could be an amicable or nasty experience. The determinant factors are the personalities of the parties involved, and the facts of the marriage.
Here is what the BEST DIVORCE looks like: There is an unchallenged prenuptial agreement which sets forth the division of assets and debts, and provides spousal support and other agreed upon divorce terms. This contract is enforceable and was agreed to by clear heads, prior to the wedding. Sounds strange, but this is the best case scenario in my divorce world.
If there is no prenuptial agreement, but both parties can agree that the marriage is over, by removing emotions from the equation, the parties can be reasonable in agreeing to divorce terms.
By way of comparison, here is what the WORST DIVORCE looks like: There is drug and alcohol abuse, domestic violence, infidelity, death threats, threats of financial ruin, restraining orders, fighting over the kids as pawns, lots of screaming, crying, destruction and very mean spirited behavior by both the husband and the wife. Someone loses his/her job, the house goes into foreclosure, the lights get turned off, the clothes get thrown onto the front lawn, cars get wrecked, along with good credit and lives. The school knows, the office knows, the family knows, the neighbors know every sordid detail.
As a divorce lawyer, I have handled these extreme divorce cases and everything in between. One husband told his wife she could have both the car and the house in a divorce settlement. He then proceeded to drive the car through the front door of the house. He was laughing all the way to jail.
