IMO, regardless of the marital situation I think he can sue her for damages to his personal property...

yeah, he can/should definitely sue her for damages on that cougar as a tort claim, but it would be a separate proceeding from the divorce one. Tell him to get a real attorney asap!

Well, I think technically it's also 50% her car, since they are married and no papers have been filed yet. I haven't seen the car to know what amount of damage has been done, but he told my wife that he had talked to the body shop and told them he would like to borrow a trailer to haul it over there and get it ready to paint... The same day he found it hammered. He was that close!

He spoke with the police and they said he can get anything he wants until papers are filed and he can even ask them to be there to make sure nobody gets hurt and as witness so that his wife can't make wild claims.

Your buddy needs to get ALL his stuff out before she sets fire to it. He should also read this book Screw the Bitch: Divorce Tactics for Men I think he can read/download it for free here: http://www.kickasstorrents.com/screw...-t3354834.html
Regards, GF.

Wow... I didn't know my daughter's deadbeat biological father was on this forum. That's the worst thing I've read in a very, very long time.

+1.

Is he renting a place elsewhere? Without a legal or clear separation it's hard to establish separate property. I doubt he can get any compensation for the car being jacked up. Besides, it wasn't the golf clubs that pissed her off. It just made the situation clear to her and she blew her top. Definitely talk to a divorce lawyer that doesn't advertise in the penny saver and don't be an ass to her, regardless of her antics. Guys being dicks to soon-to-be-exes always regret it when it comes to being in front of a judge. Lastly, don't tell the kids that their mother is being unreasonable or a bitch or anything like that. The last thing you want to do is put the kids in a position where they have to choose sides. They're the ones who are really getting shafted in this deal. [/2ȼ]

We need to make one thing perfectly clear - These people are very near retirement age. The kids are full grown adults and in fact he is now living with his son's family until he can get a place.

The daughter they adopted is 13 with some mild autism and diabetes. She needs care, which I assume his wife will provide with him visiting. The "son" who lives with them is a foster child who is in process of being adopted.

Except for the car thing, she hasn't been too awful overall, just bitter and angry and what you'd expect from a woman who's husband of 38 years has suddenly (to her) left her. She's never liked the car. He got it for FREE from a guy and has put minimal money into it, as it came with nearly everything except a motor and trans, which he got from a junker for next to nothing, and it needed paint and some minor body work.

Somehow she felt threatened that he would want to occasionally spend time in the garage fixing it up. She has no clue. When her son wouldn't let her see her grandkid that evening, she made the comment, "Just because of some piece of metal?"

She had no clue what having a project like that car that he could share with me meant to him and I. To her, it was just a waste of time and money. And she couldn't see that the reason her son didn't want her to see his kid was because she was pretty unstable.

Unless she gets help she will very soon find that she has no family who will visit. She will have no shoulder to cry on. I feel bad because right now I don't feel pity for her, and I really think I should. But you know the saying, "You reap what you sow."
