It is completely reasonable that divorcing couples may choose to litigate matters relating to the well-being and best interests of their children. It is also not surprising that divorcing litigants may contest the obligation that one party may have to contribute to the financial support of the other. However, too often in divorce matters the public’s widely held belief that divorcing couples will fight over the distribution of absolutely anything, is proven correct. Sadly, couples in the midst of their acrimony will fight over valueless personal property like dishes and towels. They will fight over frequent flyer miles and credit card points. Many even argue with one another about items of sentimental value, such as pictures, that can now easily be duplicated through technology.
