"What is wrong with you?!"

"I thought we were on the same page. I thought we were working for the same things. But you just keep trying to gaslight me. You require me to follow rules though you are making them up as you go, but then you say those rules don't apply to you. How does that work? It's worse than you working for the enemy. You are the enemy!"


He started to send me hundreds of messages by text at all hours of the night day. Mostly asking me where I was, who I was with, why wouldn't I take his calls, why didn't I text back. After the fiftieth question, like clock work, he'd start to call me names and cuss at me. I'd stopped answering days ago when I told him it was over. I finally blocked him because my phone couldn't handle the constant pinging from his messages.

To Provide Documents or Not to Provide Documents, That is the Question

Every case ultimately turns on a piece of evidence. One little document can change the course of your case. One piece of paper, one photo, one statement can change your life forever. Evidence is the lifeblood of litigation. It makes or breaks a case. When you are going through litigation it is important to gather your evidence and prepare your documents for your attorney's review. Sometimes, more important than the evidence itself is providing the evidence, good or bad, to your attorney so that your attorney can properly use the evidence to your benefit or prepare an argument against the bad evidence.

He flips the porch light on and through the window, catches a glimpse of his estranged wife, Charlotte, unloading their five-year-old daughter, Paige, from her SUV. The hairs on the back of Lucas's neck stand at attention, like those along a dog's spine when the dog senses an immediate threat. There's a fight coming.

A House Divided Against Itself...

They hadn't gotten along in a long while. He was quick at name calling, disparaging everything she tried to do. They were both supposed to be in charge of the family finances but it didn't work that way. If he wanted something, he just went out and bought it. If she wanted something, he always said they couldn't afford it.

After Midnight

There was a rule in our home growing up (ok, several rules, but one pertinent to this post): we were not allowed to call someone on the phone after 9pm. Back in those days, there were no cell phones and no texting. If you wanted to call someone, you picked up the phone attached to the wall in your house and called the person at their house, who answered the phone attached to their wall.
