Woman Takes Hit in Divorce Settlement for Sharing Husband’s “Dirty Laundry”

April 14th, 2014

When a couple goes through a divorce it’s very common for both of them to go through many different emotions, as any divorce attorney in Portland OR will tell you. Unfortunately, many times those emotions can lead to them making some poor choices. For example, when anger sets in, either or both spouses can start to share the couple’s so-called dirty laundry, or another’s misdeeds. That may be tempting to do, but it can come back to haunt you later.

A New York woman who decided to share all of her ex-husbands alleged wrongdoings while they were still married is now feeling the repercussions of her decision. According to reports, a Manhattan judge has ruled that the woman will now only get 17 percent of the $5 million value of her husband’s partnership in the law firm for which he works.

She was reportedly in line to collect about half. However, after her allegations went public, her ex-husband claimed that his value in the partnership was damaged, and the judge agreed.

As we can see, in this particular case, this woman ended up hurting herself by letting her anger get the best of her. Divorce is very difficult, which is why you should seek all the help you can get if you’re going through a divorce. That includes seeking the help of the right divorce attorney in Portland OR.
