I did however receive assistance/guidance from local attorney who volunteer to provide guidance.

Scenario: *Married years, one 18 year-old son going

Scenario:*Married for 19 years, one 18 year-old son going to in-state college in the Fall*Properties: Marital property and 3-family investment property (with $1300 income).*Salaries: Husband makes $70K. In 2015 with bonuses made $90K. Wife has worked part-time for about 10 years to raise son. For the past 7 years worked in sales, income averaging $50K. Off of the 7 years wife has been self employed - business losses every year, 2015 $0 income*Fact:1) Husband wants to keep both properties, even though according to him there is no equity in neither2) Husband will pay for college an keep paying for family insurance (that wife pays her portion)3) Son will reside with wife (although husband keeps the family home)Next steps:* Legal separation or divorce? Keeping in mind the pros and cons- insurance/taxes, etc. Note: wife is starting a new business soon* Is wife awarded alimony? For how long?* Is child support given, even though son is in college and husband is paying for it? Massachusetts seems to have child support for up to 23 years old??* If any above award, what would be more beneficial to ask for? Or would it make more sense to propose a property buyout, or ask for the rental income?* If couple comes to an agreement about everything, or to a monthly amount to be paid to the wife, will the decision made between the couple prevail in court, or does the judge decide? If the judge is the one who makes decision, what should this amount be called: child support? alimony? both? What is smarter to ask for?*Could a judge like decide that son's preference would be to come back to the home he was born in, or the new apartment be determined to be his new home* Please, provide me with the likely amount for whatever you believe I would be awarded (if anything)Thanks for you assistance in such a difficult time!

I live in NJ. After eight years of marriage my wife just filed

I live in NJ. After eight years of marriage my wife just filed for divorce. Aside from a considerable amount of liquid assets and home equity -which I expect to be divided 50/50-, my wife just settled a personal injury lawsuit for $750,000 (net $400,000) in which we were both plaintiffs. I understand that according to NJ Law I am only entitled to 8-12% of that amount. Also, I earn $99,000 a year and she $75,000. In the divorce filing she is asking for allimony. Does she have any claim to this, considering how much more money with which she is already walking away?

I made my wife leave my home in May of this year after

I made my wife leave my home in May of this year after finding she was having an affair and while I worked night work. She was locking our 5 year old daughter up inside her room and leaving the house. She immediately filed for divorce but we had a bitter custody battle which was recently resolved. We own no real property together and I was left with over $40,000.00 in marital debt. A Pennsylvania court awarded her Alimony Pendente Lite back in July. She is now deliberately stalling the divorce in order to continue collectly this. I can no longer afford my attorney becasue of paying the APL plus paying on marital debt. I'm headed to bankruptcy due to this terriblly unfair situation. Is there anything I can do to stop her from stalling on the divorce that she filed?

I have been in a abusive marriage for 8 years. I am currently in a nursing program at a state college so that I can leave my husband and have a career to support myself. I am not working because the program is full time and intense. I heard of rehabilitative alimony from a friend. Can you explain this and how much you could get. Can the lawyer make it so that my husband pays all the lawyer fees and my living expenses?Thanks.

I live in PA and I'm in the process of getting a divorce. I

I live in PA and I'm in the process of getting a divorce. I prefer not to use an attorney if possible but here are some questions I have: (currently the divorce is uncontested)1. My soon to be ex-wife lives in NY but I live in PA. Who has jurisdiction over the case?2. Everything is in my name but payments are being made so it's all owned by the bank. I can afford to pay the bills but my wife doesn't work. Will I have to sell my assets to divide them for the divorce?3. My soon to be ex doesn't work, refuses to get a job. Will I be forced to pay alimony to her and if so is there a time limit? (we have no young children/our youngest is 21)4. We're already not living together for (7) months, and she's still refusing to get a job. Will she be forced to get one? (she has no restrictions or disabilities causing her not to get a job)

In the state of Texas, if spouse has an affair, separated, filed for divorce and the other spouse (wife) makes more money than husband, even though husband had 2 year long affair, is it fact that she (wife) makes more money that she doesn't get benefits.It appears that the husband who was at fault can get her benefits because he made less - he's a lawyer.
