We asked Westchester County attorneys: What’s the worst behavior you’ve seen in a divorce case?
“In one matter, the wife was angry about her husband’s cheating so she took his high-end, custom-made, designer suits to a tailor and had the pants made into shorts.”—Jessica Ressler, Westchester Matrimonial, White Plains
“I had a client who barricaded the home so his soon-to-be ex-wife couldn’t get in to pick up some items. She had come with her brother, and, as they stood outside the house trying to talk about how to handle the situation, my client turned on a leaf blower so they couldn’t communicate.” —Al Durante, Durante, Bock & Tota PLLC Attorneys at Law, Yorktown Heights
“I’ve had clients take items from their own houses.” —Linda Markowitz, Rosenthal & Markowitz, LLP, Elmsford
“A woman had to turn over her husband’s military statue collection but instead sold the items on eBay. She had to pay him back when she got caught.” —Aaron Bock, Durante, Bock & Tota PLLC Attorneys at Law, Yorktown Heights
