According to a recent St. Louis Globe-Democrat article, a judge in New York has ordered a couple in a divorce case to construct a wall in their home while their family law case is pending. The couple has been married for twenty-one years, and they have five children. In the judge's order, he allowed the couple two weeks to determine where the wall would be constructed, or the judge would decide.
Perhaps this couple should try to settle their case via collaborative divorce. It is a process that helps take the animosity out of contentious family law cases.
