But what if I am being paid a lump sum as part of the property settlement?
We have an RV that we owe more than it is worth.
a piece of property we own free and clear (bought with the proceeds of the house he had when we married, but I helped him fix up and lived in for 1 year after we married). It is valued at $19000.
And we own a house valued at 239K that we owe 183K on.
He has been the major money earner, I have spent my time working part-time and taking care of his 2 sons that we received full custody of 2 months after we married(mom left the state).
I ended up having to drop out of college because the emotional trauma was too much to deal with and study.
I am trying to figure out what is fair, not break him. I thought 30K now and 20K when the divorce is finalized. Either as property settlement or alimony.
