That child support amount sounds low, especially if you have more than one child. And the other numbers are way off. What state are you in?
Is the partnership something that was started before or after you were married?
Thank you. That makes more sense.
You're entitled to half of all assets that were acquired during the marriage. If the total value of your vehicles is 57,000, you're each entitled to half of that. That means, if your husband wants to walk away with a vehicle worth $37,000 more than yours, he'd have to pay you half the difference. If you've been making payments toward the house together during the marriage, you're entitled to reimbursement for half those payments as marital funds. If you did any work on the house to increase the value while married, you're entitled to half the increase in value. Same if you did anything to help the partnership grow.
Spousal support is typically reserved for long term marriages (at least 10 years). What the judge is going to look at is how much money you need to maintain the marital standard of living. So, he'll look at your income and necessary expenses, your husband's income and expenses, and his ability to pay. His partnership income can be considered when determining how much alimony your husband can afford to pay you. But the starting point is what you need to live on.
