Let me tell you a little story.  Once upon a time, a spritely 79 year young client came knocking at my door.  The marriage was over he said and it was time for him to move on with the rest of his life.  No time to waste.  How soon could we get things sorted as he didn’t want to squander any precious time arguing or causing conflict.  He was a smart soul and also wanted a fair and equitable outcome for himself and his soon to be ex-wife.  Life is short he told me and he has plenty of golf-playing days left in him. Who knows, he might meet Mrs Right again.

All I can say is this story has a beautiful ending and rightly so.  Along came two lawyers who did what they were supposed to do. There was no bickering or bantering or back and forth rubbish.  I know what you are thinking, what a load of crock! Who are these lawyers? Make-believe? You’re pulling my leg?  I kid you not, I think it was a breath of fresh air for the lawyers also.

After a short time negotiating what could have been a poop throwing ordeal, a resolution was reached.  Hi-Five moment coming right up.  Not only did the separation get sorted but these two special little souls hugged and planned a garage sale together.  We know they will live separately, happily ever after.  The End.
