San Diego Superior Courthouse
Family Court Division
March 2, 2011
The Edmunds Law Firm successfully settled all issues on March 2, 2011.
This was a two year marriage wherein the Husband brought in excess of
$70,000 of debt into the marriage. Husband’s counsel demanded adamantly
that half of the debt to be assigned to the Wife, made very low offers
for spousal support, and demanded that the Wife return the $12,000 engagement
ring to Husband.
The case was litigated for several months as Husband and his counsel would not budge from their position. After argument regarding the law and a potential favorable result for Wife at trial, the case resulted in settlement wherein Husband assumed all debt including two years of unpaid income tax debt. Wife received an order for $1,400 per month on spousal support, kept the engagement ring, and Husband paid Wife’s attorney’s fees.
