It seems like everyone knows someone who has gone through a “typical” divorce or custody case. The case took too long and cost too much. The client had no control over the process and ended up being dissatisfied with the outcome. The thought of their ex still leaves them bitter. It seems like a constant battle just to enforce the judgment.
