Dear Shonee ji, with respect, I knew experts here also give wrong advice, a lot of it, but u have crossed all limits. Your advice will guide the author into dangerous territories. You want a man, who is absent from India, to work out an MCD agreement through a lawyer referred by his wife? R u insane?
You said, "trust remains the cornerstone of marriage, even when ending it." O wow. Sir, did u trust ur wife when u got married? What happened to that trust when she was into foul-plays and filed criminal cases on u? Yet u still have the temerity to say, "trust remains the cornerstone of marriage, even after ending it". Do u write with logic or do u write because it sounds nice? You got fooled by trusting ur wife, and now, r u looking for some company of fools? Do u want the author of this thread to also experience what the hazards of trust are?
And u said that in the absence of trust "the agreements of MCD are not worth the paper it is written on." Brother, this thing that u call MCD, mostly happens when trust is lost between the spouses. Pls write with logic.
The man who started this thread is from USA: I'm sure there will be some money exchanged in this MCD. And u want him to trust the wife and the lawyer referred by her?
Even though common sense is not a nail that can be hammered into someone's head, I'm still gonna try. Here we go:
In the first link, look for these phrases: “I have given her half of the permanent alimony” and “ during the 2nd motion, my wife said that she is not sure about divorce:”
U were a member at 498a.org at one point. I think u still have access to view threads. In the first link, notice how the man paid money and the wife backed out and asked for more money. I guess 'trust' worked out well for him:
Brother Anonymus, sometimes common sense should prevail. Do not, under any circumstances, let ur wife run the show of MCD. If any money is to be given, do not pay her upfront. Only a trustworthy lawyer, hired through ur own family, should look after ur interest.
