Again - edit the Newsgroups line to send followups to the
appropriate group. I apologize for the cross-posting - but it
appears I need to correct a few things from my previous posting.

Not so minor correction. In my previous posting, I didn't get to
the fine print (which I didn't have yet). At the end of my divorce
decree was a nice little clause which stated 'The following requests
of the Defendant are granted: ...'. As of my last posting, I had
not received a copy of the defendant's requests.

The damage is about an extra $60,000, including ALL of her lawyer's
fees. I'm also required to return all property that I removed from
the house and apparently pay for all bills that she has incurred
during the divorce. Despite what it said elsewhere, 1/2 of all my
pensions are given to my ex - including 1/2 of all the contributions
I made to my pension after I filed for divorce. Furthemore, half of
a 401K rollover from a previous employer I made goes to her - in
addition to half of that amount again in the new plan. I have to
pay her half of a workman's compensation settlement she got well
before the divorce, even though she had already spent it all before
I filed for divorce.

Thus, bankruptcy becomes even more of a necessity (the remainder of
my pensions, all my other assets, liquidation of my car, and a
liquidation of everthing I have would leave me with about $10,000 -
compared to an approximately $80,000 liability). Unfortunately, it
isn't clear how much of this a bankruptcy trustee can touch. If
bankruptcy can't help, the result is an IRS garnashee of my wages
(to the legal maximum) with the remainder earning compound
interest. This is on top of the 40% of my pay in child support.

Sigh!

On top of everything else, the divorce explicitly left the warrant
for my arrest active. I just got mail yesterday that the warrant is
now being transferred to here in WA. Bail is $10,000 - which I
don't have. If you start not hearing from me, you'll know why.
