But hopefully it won’t get as ugly as Nancy Tauck v. Peter Tauck. That litigation, which has dragged on for some two years, has earned these dubious distinctions:
— a new national record for the longest divorce trial ever (some 86 days and counting);
— $12 million in legal fees and expenses;
— allegations that the husband molested the kids and downloaded child pornography on his computer; and
— allegations that the wife made up said allegations about her husband, and planted the kiddie porn on his laptop to incriminate him.
Twelve million in legal bills, for a divorce? Maybe our late grandmother was on to something when she urged us to go into matrimonial law.
