Divorce, not half as easy as getting married
   by indavis <>

Well, it's been a while since I have written a Pfft, but have had plenty, and probably need to sit down, take some time and catch up. Right now, I am in the process of a divorce, which is Pfftable in its own right. The good part is we are filing uncontested, and I have had the papers drawn up. Now, for the Pfft...

Here's the process. You go in with the initial papers, file them, pay money, and voila, you have a case number. From then on, you file the rest of the papers with the case number, and when everything is kosher, a judge looks at it, and you go on your merry way. Well, paying the money and getting a court case was easy. Getting the rest of the papers through was a hassle, and still in progress. Had her served, not too problematic. Again, here's where the Pfft comes in. I file all the papers, and about two days later receive them all back in the mail with a list of instructions of what I am missing or did wrong. I fix everything, and send them back in. Again, two days later, I get them back with another list of what I did wrong. Now correct me if I am wrong, but couldn't they have said everything the first time? Once again, I made the fix (2 extra copies of 3 forms - sub pfft - they were probably right next to a copy machine when sending back all my papers for not enough copies). So now, a week goes by, and I figure I am on the edge of having a judge sign off on my divorce. Papers come back today, and another set of instructions. PFFT!!! Come on guys. Sit down, and make me a full list. This is costing me time off work, travel to the courthouse, money for parking, and just general high blood pressure.

I just want this over with.. Isaac
