    Congratulations, John. I've been there and done that myself, in a previous life...and had a little divorce celebration myself. Enjoy the single life!

    I don't know anything about your situation John but if you're happy about it, then I'm happy about it!

    You situation sounds a lot like my son's. His divorce has dragged on for a while now, and the little kid is not the reason. The ex wife just seems to be delaying things because she isn't sure any more. Well, he is sure, and that's what matters now. He just turned 36. So, here I am in my "golden years" helping to raise another child. I'll be eighty years old when he graduates. Guess I can forget any plans I had for an event filled retirement.

    Sorry, this is supposed to be a good news thread, so I will add that I do have a lot of fun with the kid and enjoy teaching him so many things.

    Luckily, I had no children involved, so it SHOULD have been a much quicker thing than it was. I'm convinced my lawyer was just trying to slow things down so he could bill as much as possible, though.

    Congrats, John. Divorce is never easy, but I think anyone that's tried/is trying to get a divorce with kids involved envies you. Good luck on your future.

    John I know exactly what you mean having done the same thing at about the same age as you.

    The kid isn't a problem since she doesn't want him very often.

    Luckily, my son's attorney is very fair. She told him up front what the retainer would be and that she would let him know when more is needed. Now, months later, she has only used a few hundred dollars. Also, she gives a discount to people in public service positions. We just want it all over. He's married, but really not, you know?
