    Have you ever actually done some of the things you advise others to do?

    I don’t doubt that a bit. Not sure what I could do about it, I just think it’s reasonable to get a reduction but hell, they will probably increase my alimony from my experience in this “court”.

    I'd do Uruguay in a New York minute, that is My Plan A if I survive SWMBO.. My thinking is that I have to head somewhere where 'Oldsters' are appreciated, maybe Vietnam, Laos, Indonesia I can't imagine how FUBAR 'Affordable Healthcare' will be when I go for the 4th and 5th opinions on proctology exams..

    That depends on when you get divorced.

    I have a friend going thru a very nasty divorce right now. I always thought I may meet another girl and eventually get married. I lost my first wife in a car wreck years ago and almost made a huge mistake years later by almost getting married to a girl who just wanted to be married. I've told my friend several times I hate he's having to go thru it but they sure cured me from ever wanting to get married again. If you ever hear of me getting married you can dang sure bet you can actually see her angel wings and halo.

    It is possible that she puts everything each month on credit card and pays in full each month to get the points. If your disciplined it can add up to nice perks.

    35000-60000 southwest points is a pair of round trip tickets if your dates are flexible

    I'm sure it's nice, but it seems to me that if your advice is valid, Bali would be overpopulated with the type of people that flee from financial obligations.

    BTW, how much were your alimony payments when you went there?

    Don't know, but my guess is there are a LOT fewer marriages these days.

    Single parenthood is socially glorified, and government supported, so couples 'lose' money if they get married. Single women with children get very significant government benefits regardless of the circumstances, especially in certain states. Not saying that's right or wrong, just saying.

    I bet many people, young and old want no part of the possibility of becoming a part of the divorce industry, and make no mistake it is indeed a growth industry for lawyers and government agencies.

    That said, pu$$i3s who won't support their kids are largely responsible. From personal experience, it takes some starch to rise above the ugliness of a divorce and do what is right. Many can't, or won't put their children above the emotional and financial storm, and follow through on their obligation to support them.

    I'll be long dead by then, but my prediction is the marriage institution will statistically either fade away, or mostly be used by same sex couples.

    Back to the original question, anybody know if you can purchase investments or “buy” cash to hide using a crefit card? I am asking my lawyer to see if he can get some of the statements.

    I'm still going to suggest you cut your losses and head to Bali.
    But if you insist on staying, spending more with a lawyer, etc.

    Sounds like she has a new expensive hobby. But since she's paying it off every month, I'm not sure I understand why it would affect your alimony.

    If she shows less in assets on her documentation, then the court feels sorry for her and I keep paying for the next 5 years even though my income is less than hers now. Oh well, I give up on this. Domestic relations court has nothing to do with fairness or reallity.

    Bali sounds good, how is the fishing? Only problem with that is they will be able to get the alimony from my pension. If not, i would do that. Say if a guy had $450,000 in cash, how long could one live comfortably down there, without a boat?
