Here is a followup if you don't mind.
My husband threatens to prove in court that I am abusive and says he will definitely get custody of the child. What kind of evidence does the court need? I am a normal woman with a bad marriage. I am financially independent, completely responsible, make a 6 figure income and work as an Engineer.
My husband's W2s are artificially kept low by him. He is also an engineer and makes more than me, but figured out ways of siphoning off part of the income into offshore accounts without showing up in W2s. He has transferred above 50K in US dollars into an undisclosed offshore account from our joint account back in 2010. I have maintained separate accounts since as I still don't have answers on what he did with that cash.
Given my husbands income is less than 60K (I don't have evidence to prove what he does, except I know he does it). Mine is twice as much as his income (though I have fewer years experience in the same field).
I am worried about two things:
1. He is a very smart person. He can play with words and convince anybody of anything. Will he succeed in getting child custody and separate me from the baby? He threatens me of it.
2. Will he get alimony from me because of our income situation?
Thanks in advance.
Thank you! Appreciate your advice.
