Wright County District Court Judge Stephen M. Halsey shares his experience with the phrase “you can pay for your kids to go to college, or your lawyer’s kids, but not both.” Halsey commonly heard the phrase used by a now-retired Minnesota judge, and is now one that he often uses himself. It’s a good piece of advice to think about when contemplating entering into a lengthy litigation arguing over simple matters instead of using some rational thinking and work out those matters civilly between one another. Divorce and child custody can be emotionally trying matters, but do your best to use good rational judgment, your pocketbook will thank you later.
