Wife and I are getting a divorce, we have no primary

Wife and I are getting a divorce, we have no primary residence but we have 2 rental properties together. She has put the most money in but I paid for everything else to allow her to do that. Does she have a case for shoving me aside with very little payout compared to the equity in the properties plus she wants my IRA which she did contribute to? I estimate the we have a net worth of approx $160k and she is offering $35k no IRA. My IRA is ready in 10 years!

We are going thru divorce. Our child has disability -autism-

We are going thru divorce. Our child has disability -autism- and he was receiving free health insurance thru medical.When DCSS opened a case they charged my ex for health insurance thru his work. It is now $320+ $40 co-pay for every therapy session. We have 8 classes per week so it makes it $1600 per month including insurance. They told us that we have an option to apply for hardship and my ex wanted to do it but then changed his mind.He is making 100k/yr and I am receiving social security income in the amount of 26000/yr to take care of our son.Ex already makes me pay 1/2 of daycare-$500. Would it be expected that I pay 1/2 off medical expenses as well?What if I cant afford it? He didnt pay me spousal support since June 2016.I feel like this behaviour is part of some strategy bc he wants me to start full time job but I cant do it bc I am taking our son to therapy sessions.Can I do anything to prevent him from increasing insurance cost?It is like he would rather spend his $$ on overpriced therapy sessions instead of giving it to me as child and spousal support.Thank you!!

I was divorced in Texas. My ex was the one who drafted the

I was divorced in Texas. My ex was the one who drafted the decree - he is a corporate compliance attorney and NOT a family law attorney. In the decree it states that spousal support shall end upon my remarrying. However, there is nothing in the decree with regard to "cohabitation". Is it standard to have a cohabitation clause in a Texas divorce decree? If so, since mine doesn't have one - does that mean he can't stop my spousal support payments if I'm living with someone? He only has another year and a half to pay me - but I would hate to lose that money simply for living with someone....JA: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: I now reside in Florida - but the divorce was in TexasJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: Not yetJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No
