got served today

Post by elgringo on Sat Feb 26, 2011 8:41 am

Came back to Texas on Wednesday to sign the papers to sell my ranch, Had a great visit with the wife and kids Thursday and Friday. This morning I had the doorbell ring so I answered it. Was I surprised to be served divorce papers from my Wife. Talk about feeling betrayed. They Never let on that there was a problem. My question is this: My wife wants the rest of the property in Texas and for me to take the houses in Mexico. Since the properties are in both our names what do I need to do to get her off the titles?

Sorry to hear that elgringo.

I would suggest that you talk with a lawyer in both the US and Mexico.

Generally you cannot do anything without a court order / signed consent from the other side due to standard family law restraining orders prohibiting you from disposing of property except to pay for attorney fees or the necessities of life.

You'll need to respond so she doesn't take your default and then work out a settlement agreement, probably get the properties appraised as well.

What a bitch of a thing to happen! And I'm a woman. That's a terrible way to find out. I've been divorced and no one ever did that to me or me to them. Unless Texas has strange laws you usually split everything 50/50 which usually means selling and then splitting. The properties in Mexico may be of low enough value right now for you to buy her out of her half with the proceeds from Texas. If it's a ranch it should be worth a lot. and make sure you get separate lawyers.

I agree with Simpsca. What could have been a big shock was made huge and ugly. Sorry to hear it. Don't get mad...get even..by having a wonderful rest of your life.

I like Kips' idea - get even by having a better life without her. After the divorce you can get a beautiful young Mexican girlfriend, take a photo of yourselves, and send it to a friend who lives near to her to show her how happy you are. And maybe Spencer will let you pose on his motor bike to make her really jealous.

Shoot her? That's an Italian divorce.

Just depends on how well you like orange jumpsuits and friendly shower buddies.

Don't shoot her lawyer.........find a better one of your own. pirat

Just give her 50% of everything, then head to the Lake and fogedaboudit. Avoid lawyers if you can or there will only be 25% left......

Except she doesn't sound like someone who would be happy with 50%. Like my husband's ex, she'll want much more.

Let's hope not. Being blind sided was bad enough...especially involving the kids.

Most states are 50/50 - it's the law now on divorce unless there was a pre-nup - I don't know about Texas though.

...only trouble is, a woman sly enough to pull what she did on the guy would have already been setting him up, big time.
Lawyers are not all nice guys, but a half decent one may save him a pot to P in and a window, etc.

After getting this over with as calmly as possible, it's time to forgedaboutit.......and never EVER tell a new girlfriend about what happened. That's got to be a turnoff at the same level as women talking about their exes. Move on......and life can be good. Buen Suerte.

I'm a woman but I let my first husband have the bulk of our stuff because I just wanted out and can't deal with bitter fights.
