Counsel with Care

“Court is not . . . a tool to frustrate . . .

Divorce is both the result of unresolved disappointments and resentments and the source of terrible desires for revenge. Thus, it is common for people to try and exact revenge through the courts. Common, but not particularly beneficial to any party. The Court of Appeals reminds us on this in their unpublished decision, Hollis v. Hollis, 2005-CA-000770-MR (June 1, 2007). The Court states:

    “While we do not now find that John should be directed to show cause why he should not be sanctioned, we give fair warning that this Court is not to be used as a tool to frustrate the peaceful resolution of a broken marriage.”

Mr. Hollis apparently had a penchant for filing pro se motions attacking everything from the refusal of the trial court to give him a videotape of the proceedings to an attempt at trying to force Ms Hollis to return unspent child support.

So, a word of free legal advise. Let Mr. Hollis teach you if you are contemplating or undergoing divorce and talk to a counselor or scream at a pillow and leave such acts of retribution out of the courtroom. Do not expect satisfaction from the judicial process in a divorce; the court just forces a resolution in the most efficient manner it knows.
