Good question, I have no idea if this could be considered legal malpractice. I saw that he had the triplex listed for sale last month and it's close to my office. I ran the numbers on the deal and determined it to be one of the three multi-units in the city that I would buy, just happened to by her attorney's triplex, straight coincidence. The guy does own a lot of property, he flips, buy and holds, employs full timers to rehab houses, and was a real estate broker for 20 years.

I brought up the idea of my buying his triplex at the alimony hearing in front of my wife and both attorneys, I asked if it would be okay if I bought it, they both agreed that it would be fine. So full disclosure has been made, and I'm sure we would sign more disclosures identifying the parties to the transaction and their other legal entanglements, this should cover the bases in case someone has a problem down the line.

My wife does understand that I have bent over backwards in order to provide her with everything she needs, a house, MS degree, got her to attend RCIA classes so she could finally get baptized, travel to 7 countries in 3 years. All I asked was for her to get a job to match her education and hopes for herself so she could live a fulfilling life. I don't believe she's out to rape me with alimony, she'll take the buyout, already told me she would, and I'll get a notarized document to that fact.

Her sisters would look down on her a little if she took alimony from me. They both have MS degrees as well, liberal, educated, urban, progressive and prideful types. They know she is operating well below her capability and see why I feel the way I do and agree that she should be using her degree. My wife is very socially conscious in regards to how people perceive her independence and education, she wouldn't want her family to look down on her for taking an unwarranted handout like $1,500 per month in alimony from an uneducated vet from the sticks, it flies in the face of their elitist, liberal thinking and their huge egos. It would verify to them that their own hyper educated aspirations aren't that big of a deal or as important as they like to believe.

Re: Question about alimony

I don't know if this will help you feel better but check your tax laws.... alimony is deductible for you and taxable to her on Federal level. Check your state tax laws to see what they are.
Hope that gives you a positive in all the negative you are dealing with

That's like the United States buying bombs from Al quaeda or something.
Yeah, it's a crazy world. Funny thing is he's selling the triplex to pay his wife that he's divorcing. She wants her portion of the equity. Everywhere I turn... Divorce.
