Well today Brian signed for receipt of the divorce papers after dodging the process server for a week.
the papers he signed for.
Of course he cannot find any other way to obtain the answer sheet becauseeach type of case requires a different answer sheet so if he does not pay for a professional lawyer to
represent him which he has no income to afford he will be in violation of the 20 day rule & be in more
trouble than he is by being evicted from the apartment where he is listed on the lease.
Brian & his wife married in July 2010 & were happily married until about 3 months ago when she took
the only car they shared to work one morning & didn’t return home after work. So basically he was home
alone with no wheels wondering where she was. She went to mother’s after work & texted him 2 hours
later (not called) and texted that she was not coming home. She came by the next day & said he could
keep the car & she would share her mother’s car until she moved back into the apartment which is right
next door to where she works. Kerri is a 10th grade English Teach at Wylie High School in Wylie Texas.
Then she says she is open to discussing a reconciliation. Changes her mind every week or so. Finally
files papers with the lawyer telling Brian not to hire his own lawyer because we are going to keep this
civil & nice. We are going to keep this an uncontested divorce. You keep what you had when we married.
I keep what I had.
Well being married only 5 years Brian does not qualify for any spousal support. But he does qualify for
50 percent of everything acquired during the marriage. As I said before she had gone through school
for her 4 years of teaching degree. She is still paying off student loans & this was only her first permanent
hire year at Wylie High School.
Therefore they only had the one car to share & since her pay was higher it was expected that Brian would
not get work. For 3 years he was kept at home like a caged pet without access to wheels. You cannot get
public transportation in the country to get work. And you cannot walk to work, not the way this area is.
He tried to find a job during that last 2 years just during nights & weekends so the car would be available
since she would be home by then but she said she did not want him working since she would never see him.
Then her girlfriend moves back home from out of state & she starts taking the car to the girlfriend’s once a
week for a girl’s night leaving Brian at home w/o wheels once again one night a week never asking if he would like to be dropped somewhere & forgetting telling him not to have employment history.
Now without any income of his own she plans to take all the money she has saved with her, move back into
this apartment & kick Brian out into homeless shelters.
During the week he was dodging the process server the process server became louder & more harassing.
So he finally signed for receipt of papers & of course what he needs to return to be legal in 20 days is not in there so now I will have to pay the typical Dallas area retainer for a lawyer which is 5,000.00 just so he can get out of this divorce without any infractions for not signing & returning something.
He probably won’t get any more lodging money without a 10 year marriage but at least he might get the car she left him. She & her mother never included him on the insurance policy on the car & he has no driver’s insurance from any other car so he is basically driving with the mother’s & wife’s insurance on the car.
I don’t think without a lawyer he will even get the old 11 year old car.
I have at least contacted 4 divorce lawyers in the area for consultations to see what they can do for him.
I will have to pay for the huge retainer as they are obviously not giving him the legal paperwork necessary.
I don’t want him to end up with future garnished wages or anything like that.
And of course there is alot of threatening nonsense from the wife & the process servers.
