When you get married, you probably expected that the union would last a lifetime. In some cases, the blissful joy of marriage stays put and the relationship survives. In other cases, things take a turn downward. For one New York man, his marriage seemingly ended, and he had no idea.
The man has sued to have his divorce and postnuptial agreement voided. He claims that his now ex-wife filed for divorce in September of 2007 without serving him papers. A Staten Island judge granted the divorce in 2009 without the man ever contesting it. He claims that his ex made a postnuptial agreement that entitled her to stocks, savings, a $1 million home and other assets. He said it gave him his belongings and two cars.
