We've been married over 20 years. There are no children. My husband will not tell me his current income but has said that he was 'finally getting a good paycheck.' With that info, I can assume he is making 100,000-125,000. He is renting a townhouse with his girlfriend who was just laid off from work. I am getting 1400.00 a month from ssdi. My mother contributes 300 a month and my husband has been sending 200 a month. I currently own a 2004 Saturn worth about $2000.00. I don't know if he has paid off an auto loan on his current vehicle. The mortgage we currently co-signed on is $190,000 and the home equity line of credit is 50,000.
No, when my husband left, he cashed his out so there was nothing left for us to split. When I became ill and we were still together, he insisted I cash mine out to pay for monthly bills.
sending divorce papers doesn't necessarily mean he has 'filed'? How do I find out?
Lake Worth and no case file number
I had consulted with a lawyer some time ago and was lead to believe that alimony was not longer easily granted. How do I proceed to alimony?
