A divorced Montreal woman is claiming a ridiculous sum per month in support of her wealthy husband in a battle that will make history. She is asking for 230k/month.
This file of divorce will become the most important in the history of the country if it starts as planned next October at the courthouse. An agreement between the parties seems unlikely based on the some troubles over the years.
In the meantime, an army of experts is squandering its weapons in preparation for this trial, which is expected to last between six and eight weeks. Among them are a dozen lawyers and several high level accountants.
Experts Weigh In
The stakes are enormous. She is asking for a lot for what she provided. Sure there is companionship but is it worth that much?
She says she wants to maintain the way of life, according to her own description, which she had while they were a couple.
Never seen before
It’s definitely the biggest cause of divorce in history, comments more well-known lawyers. In this case, however, the woman did not play a significant part in the building of the man’s business so that should not be part of the settlement.
It is not the case of this divorce that is taking shape: this time, the woman has been married for nearly 30 years and there are a lot of complications.
It should be noted that the Quebec legislation prohibits the appointment of spouses involved in marital causes.
