my husband got himself another family being married to me.He is in military ,i dont work and have his insurance. He paying basic bills(as he is in AF),but not support me at all financially .We have house,which i would like to keep after the divorce.I also would need spousal maintnance for period i finish my education . Is it possible ?
Country relating to Question: United States
nothing yet. he is in infidelity and i need some medical treatement. i am worry he may file any day before i can take his infidelity to his command,who most likely wont do nothing about it.
Thanks for the chance to help. I am an attorney with over 12 years experience. Hopefully I can help you with your legal question.Can you tell me, how long have you been married and how long has he been in the AF?
married only 1,5 years. he is in AF for 15 years,i think he can retire all ready .
ThanksWith a marriage that short, it is highly unlikely the court will grant spousal support. At least not for any significant period of time. Perhaps short term, 6 months to a year. But it is not likely they would grant support longer than thatThat said, if he is active AF he has a duty to provide support to you while the marriage is intact. You can contact his Squadron Commander and let him or her know he is not providing support...they can require him to provide you a portion of his Basic Housing Allowance.
his command dont care as long as pays mortgage . Allowances is only 250 and his FSgnt told me my husband dont have money and have to live too. He is runned 12 K in last three month with his new female whom he seing everyday.This month my husband only paid mortgage. I was asking about spousal maintenance ,sorry for the confusion. i know i wont have much . But would court able to grant me a house if i have sposal maintnace and part time job while in school ?
Sure...they can. But that presumes you are willing to pay a lawyer to fight this for you...and frankly, the cost you pay the lawyer would likely exceed what you get from the court.You see, A divorce can be either contested or uncontestedUncontested; Now the fastest, (and by far the least expensive) way to get a divorce is if you can agree on the terms. If you can agree on "who gets what" there is not a need for attorneys...this will cut the costs to a very small amount (court fees)Contested; if you can not agree, this is a contested divorce. To proceed you need an attorney or need to act as your own attorney (very bad idea). Here the parties present evidence to the court on "who gets what" and the court decides. This take longer and involves attorney fees for both sides. So if you can not work this out, by all means find the money to hire a lawyer....but you can both save a lot of money if you can work this out without lawyers
thanks . But in my case-it seems impossible to find the meet in the middle with him. His woman seem pregnant(or claiming she is). He got nasty enough to cut me off the food money,gas money and emergency visits when i asked him to take me...He does not respond calls or texts. He think i deserve nothing. i ...dont beleive it gonna be easy ,especailly if he is planning to have baby..he will try to bring them to our home(where i resigned alone right now because we had restr. order ,and after i dismissed it-he still not coming home. he is mad,and planning to stay mad ...how much lawyers cost approximately ?
A contested divorce can cost $10K or more...much more...if you can not agree.Of course, if you hire a lawyer, he will have to as wellSo perhaps you hire a lawyer, and when he realizes he is going to have to the same perhaps he will work with you on this
