I am a 59 year old Australian and have been married to a US

Hi, I am a 59 year old Australian and have been married to a US citizen for almost 5 years. I have contributed no money to the marriage. I left my job in Aust. to marry my husband and live with him in Kauai. I have not earned money in 5 years. My husband is quite wealthy. He owns the house we live in (worth about $3-4 million) and my name is ***** ***** any documentation regarding this. Our marriage is on the brink of breaking up. I have no idea what I am entitled to as if we split up I will return to Aust and have no home, no money, and as I am about to turn 60, my job opportunities are diminished. I would very much appreciate advice. Thanks.

Divorce - I have been a non-working wife for the whole 18

Divorce - I have been a non-working wife for the whole 18 years of marriage - husband filed for divorce to stop me from moving out of State with two teen boys & prevented me fromAccepting a job.After 1 1/2 years of fighting for divorce, I succumbed to living together again yet in separate bedrooms in order to give my boys and self financial & emotional stability. We are now about to close on a new house - husband refusing to put house in my name, he has taken me off all joint credit cards and banking....so, he just gives me money as I need it. I am not comfortable with this situation.I am wondering should I get Legally Separated (live in Georgia) or should I have a Post Nup drawn up, any other advice??

My wife and I live in Atlanta. We are looking a divorce

My wife and I live in Atlanta. We are looking for get a divorce "irreconcilable differences". I am the bread provider and we have been married for approx 4 years.Below is a quick summary of my current situation:• Got divorced in 2009 (after 22 years) – paying “permanent alimony” of a significant amount• Got remarried in 2012 to my current wife that came to the US under a fiancée visa. Getting married was the only way for her to stay in the country but nevertheless we had intentions of staying together if things worked out• No kids together• Although I have a really good salary and job, current financial situation is not great from the point of view of savings, etc. Just got out of the hole from the 1st marriage this year• Just relocated from Jacksonville in January (already has been 6 months)• No prenup, etc. in placeThe main reason that we want to get a divorce is because we lost all trust in each other and the situation is a bit stressful. I guess irreconcilable differences fits here. At this point, I am not sure what she is entitled to given that we have been married for approx. 4 years. I would like to be fair and make sure she gets some $$ to allow her to land on her two feet since I do care for her.I am not sure if she is going to try to get a lot of $$ from me or not and what should is entitled to since there is not much $$ in the bank and we have not purchase a lot of things (other than approx. $15k in furniture) during our time together. She does say that she does not want a single penny from me but at the same time she has indicated that she would want to get an attorney to represent her.At this point I am trying to understand the following:• What is she entitled to by law (by the book)• Does my income plays a role in determining what she is entitled to or is it just a split of the assets we obtain together regardless of my income• What is the most economical way to get this going. Just go to the court house like when we did when we got married or should I get an attorney to drive the process.I look forward to your answer.
