The Saga Of The Matrimonial Home With Dolores Alice Dukes In Family Court
Matrimonial Home Nightmare#matrimonial-home-nightmare-with-dolores-alice-dukes-in-family-court
The dysfunction of how the matrimonial home was dealt with in The Family Court System resembled and personifies everything the mother did in our divorce, including the complete alienation of me FROM the matrimonial home very early on in the separation.
The matrimonial was big, beautiful, historic, in one of the best school districts, on almost an acre of land, zoned commercial/residential and was completely paid for before my 40th birthday. I considered owning this place quite an accomplishment as it meant a certain level of success to me. This house was a sense of pride for both myself and the mother. She didn't have to work too hard to pay for it, merely maintain it. I did a wrath of renovation and repair work to make this home truly a comfortable and amazingly luxurious place to live. Life was great and with plans of creating a work from home situaion from the studio space above the garage, it certainly appeared that we could retire here and live a long prosperous life in this fabulous and unique home.
But it wasn't long before it would be all gone only to remain a painful memory to me now, starting with this hand-written letter left for me April 18, 2005 by the mother.
