Good evening,

I'm Doug, and I'm very sorry to hear of your situation. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today.

As your name is ***** ***** deed to both properties there is a presumption that you own 50% of each of them and you will get that value in the divorce.

You asked: We have 4 year old son I do not work and haven't for over 4 years, would my son and I be able to remain in home, would I be able to get support for myself? You will be entitled to child support of roughly 20% of his monthly income and spousal support of about 20% to 25% of his income for at least 2 to 3 years base on the duration of your marriage.

You are entitled to 50% of the investment that has been accumulated since your marriage. Anything that he had in the account before that time is his, and his alone.

Land in CA that he owned before marriage and you name is ***** ***** the deed he will get free of any claim from you. Any money presently in any joint account is 50% yours---take it now if you are about to file for divorce.

You need to be living apart before a court will order that he pay you either child support or spousal support.

You may reply back to me using the Reply link and I will be happy to continue to assist you until I am able to address your concerns, to your satisfaction.

Please be so kind as to rate my service to you. That is the only way I am credited for assisting you.

I wish you and yours the best in 2016,

Doug

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
