In Re Marriage of Schleich (Cal. Ct. App. - Feb. 8, 2017)

From today's opinion:

"Husband served Wife with the dissolution petition and a $75,000 marital settlement agreement, warning her that “it could get very ugly” if she did not sign the agreement."

Well, he was right about one thing.  It did get ugly.  Very ugly.

But it also turned out extraordinarily bad for Husband.  Who ended up paying way, way more than $75,000.

Lesson of the day:  It often doesn't pay to be overly aggressive with your settlement offers.
