It is being reported on December 19, 2015 that 57-year-old Diane Wagner of Hopatcong, NJ is being sued by her ex-husband for calling him names on her alimony checks to him. His lawyer is suing her for unspecified damages claiming that the malicious memos on the checks she wrote, have caused her ex-husband emotional distress.
Ms. Wagner finalized her divorce from her husband, Francis Wagner, 61, of Denville, N.J., a year ago. She initiated the separation after a decade of matrimony alleging that she suffered for years from his alcoholic outbursts. In the end she was ordered to pay him $186 per week of alimony until 2020.
Ms. Wagner stated that she paid the weekly amounts religiously. “As far as I’m concerned I can write anything I want on the memo line because it’s a note to myself. I was the victim in that marriage. What more blood does he want from me?”
Ms. Wagner allegedly wrote on the memo line of the checks, “Alimony/Adult Child Support,” “bum,” “loser,” and most recently “FOAD.” She declined to elaborate on what the acronym stood for, maintaining that it was just a note to herself. According to Urban Dictionary online FOAD stands for F– Off And Die.
