      WO, my thoughts are with you brother. I know what you are going through and it does play h.... with the nerves and every other internal part of the body. I know its easier said than done but try to remain strong through everything, after it is all over, you'll be a stronger man.

      P.S. If you need to talk, drop me a PM and I'll send you my phone number.

        well, my lawyer told me that it was illegal to "sell my tools" because the assets have been frozen. he also told me that it would look fishy to the judge. my tooling is not the main source of my income but a significant part of it, from that he said that she shouldnt be able to touch them. my flatbed (rig truck help) is owned by welder_one fabrications and it is protected as well as my machines and metal working tools. it is all of my snap-on, mac, matco, and cornwell hand tools and various others and that giant toolbox that it all sits in that has me scared...

        Are your tools marked with your initials? If they are, their value is approximately 1/3 of unmarked. I wouldn't consider purchasing tools marked with another person's initials in any case.

        If they are not initialed, take this only as a hint.

        Assuming that they are initialed, get an appraisal from an expert appraiser for tools of that type. You would only be liable to your spouse for the present value at the time of trial, not what you paid for them. The same is true for other items of personal property.

        Then you can arange to trade other items that you don't want for your tool ownership value. I doubt, based on professional knowledge, that the court will force you to sell the tools. They are the tools of your trade and you need them to earn a living, something that your spouse apparently cares littles about. You will be permitted to keep them, albeit having to pay some value for them, initialed nicely, of course, heh heh.

        If your present mouthpiece even vaguely suggests that you shold sell your tools, then clearly, he needs to be re-trained.

        Despite what others may say about being fair and going to counseling, etc, that's all plain bad advice. The cat is out of the bag now. Once the divorce is filed, it's catch as catch can or Marquis of Queensbury rules. It's war.

        Good luck.

          Go for the Good Stuff

          Consult your lawyer about if she can get FMV for the tools but Im with the guys saying go for her stuff. Make sure you go after the sentimental grandmothers earrings, china, ashes...... might be sick but thats low trying to take your tools.

            alright boys, here is the deal. my lawyer said that he probably couldnt save my tools or my flatbed. he did slow it down and make it so very expensive that she quickly lost interest. it was costing her more in a week than she makes in a month.

            i have had to seriously bust my tail on some work, though. it was pretty expensive on my part, too. she filed this time to all she has is hers and all i have is mine...only thing was a car that i have to give her half of fmv on, and that pretty much sums it up...

              Good going on your tools and like I said during my divorce, it was money well spent. After all, it is only money and you cant take it with you, well you can but what will you spend it on

              You still have the anxiety to put up with until the papers are signed but you have the peace of mind right now. I hope everything else goes fine for you.

                        Bin der, dun dat.
                        One night as I was falling asleep, in a soft, s*xy voice, my wife of 15 years whispered; "I want a divorce." Now that'll make ya soft!!
                        For all you young uns following your unit around, beware! You'll never know what she wants next. She'll scr*w you to get you married and she'll scr*w you in the divorce. Keep her working, that way she'll have a career when she leaves you.
                        70% of the divorces are initiated by the woman.
                        Good luck, welder_one. I'm glad you got the 'yours is yours, mine is mine'.

                            Good for you! Nice to hear from someone who actually listened to his lawyer, played by the rules, and ended up getting what he wanted anyway. There's a lesson in there for all.

                              That does not always work. Come to Lancaster County, Pa. Listened to my lawyer, still end up paying alimoney after she remarried. Vaseline is always on sale.

                              There is only one good place in America to get a divorce and that is Las Vegas, you live there 6 month and she doesn't even have to agree to it or be there.
