What are my options for their business? When I admitted to cheating he told me he forgave me but he didn’t I asked him why did u do this to us he said cuz I did it to him I’m not gonna go back and forth I want him gone and his family. He is a very convincing liar trust me me I saw him in action many days.
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
I just need a place to stay money to live and a van fit for our son. He is the kind of person that if he is not hungry no one else can eat until I get in his ass and go as far as physically taking the money. Like now our son needs toiletries and personal care products and nothing. Luckily I have loving friends. I’m driving a 1989 Nissan maximum that my best friend gave me because she couldn’t believe he would leave us like that. If I have to take him anywhere I have to have someone sit in the back seat with him so he can lay on their lap because he is too tall to sit up in his car seat. Please excuse me I tearing up cuz I am still in shock. I am alone in this. I have my older children trying to keep me sane. I dnt want to be around people I dnt want to leave my room. My kids are going crazy because they never seen me like this. Help me plz

Ok thank you. In conjunction with everything else I just want to know if I have any standing with his mistress she lived with us rent free bought her clothes fed her drove her back and forth to work. I am still in shock now he can’t afford medical insurance for me. I can’t get upset because of my health. All I want is to move into a ranch style house with a finished basement, a van with a lift for my son, money to pay the bills and buy my son his special diet and medical supplies.

GA is an equitable distribution state. That means that the court looks at all of the assets and property of the parties that is considered marital property. Generally, marital property is property and assets that the parties have acquired either jointly or solely during the marriage. The court than decides how those properties and assets will be distributed to each spouse in a fair and equitable manner. Before I go into what you would like out of the divorce let me say that unless you and your husband can come up with an agreement then the court decides how the property is divided, and the court has wide discretion in how they do that, and I am also assuming that the things your are requesting fall under marital property that the court has the power to decide on.

It is possible for the house to be ordered to be sold and the proceeds split either equally or at some other ratio. Splitting the proceeds assumes that there is equity in the home that would net proceeds after the sale. As far as your request for the vehicle. The court can order that the van be transferred to you, or that it be sold, and the proceeds be allocated to the parties. Additionally if any money is awarded to you out of this divorce, then rather than awarding you that car the court can just assume that you will purchase a suitable vehicle out of any money awarded to you. With respect to his other properties, and businesses, the court would make determinations on how those assets will be divided. Generally, unless you were an active participant in the formation and control of the business then he would likely be awarded the business.

It is unlikely that you have a legal claim against the other woman for reimbursement of food or expenses that were contributed while she lived with you unless there was am explicit agreement that you would be reimbursed.

Unfortunately, Georgia does not recognize legal separation; it is not an action they can grant. In Georgia, "legal separation" means the spouses no longer engage in marital relations. The term has no time frame, and the two people can be legally separated even if they reside in the same house but do not share the same room or have sexual relations.

Georgia offers divorce, annulments or separate maintenance. In this regime, a divorce ends a marriage; an annulment vacates a flawed marriage; and a separate maintenance order allows the court to rule on the marital issues surrounding the partnership, but does not grant divorce. In Georgia, separate maintenance decides all other marital issues such as property division, finances, custody of children.

Again, I am sorry that you are going through this. This sounds like a very complex divorce and if you proceed I would strongly recommend you seek the advise and assistance of a family law attorney. I hope that you get better. Please let me know if there is anything else you want to discuss. I would be happy to continue this conversation. If so just reply to this response.
