my husband is in a agreement to end the marriage, but we are having a hard time coming up on a fare custody agreement. i want full custody because he is an alcoholic and just now from nov 25th going to AA. my kids are 14, 17. he asked for a separation but did not follow thur. he wants to live in the same house and wait til our son graduates from high school. he is having an affair and i don't want to be around him anymore.
i dont want anything from him other than to have the children. i will allow weekends visits. our debt is so high, our house is up side down. i will have to fill bankruptcy. the only thing we have paid off is our timeshare, which i would like to have because i was a surragate with twins 15 yrs ago and paid off all his collections notes that were over 10k. he has been an alcoholic during our whole marriage which lead me into a depression and also have 3 pregnancy in a row. after i had our daughter(95) then we stated the surragate process which twin were born in 97. then our son in 98. sorry for venting.
