I wish I knew all the info I have now back when I was first separating. My wife and I were in the process of separating and she acted first. She emptied the house of all furniture and started the court case.

She knew very well that if she took a hard position to not be flexible, it would cost me more in legal fees than the worth of the furniture. So now in my late 30s I have the household belongings of an 18 year old off at university.

Moreover, she learned that only 2% of cases actually go to trial. So she acted like an uncompromising bully throughout our court battle, racking up my legal costs and holding out for as long as possible. Yet my lawyer kept telling me to play nice and take high road, just in case we ended up at trial.
