Good morning, I am filing divorce now. My biggest concern now is the custody of the two kids. We have 12-year- old boy and 7- year-old girl, both are very closed to me, and the two kids are very closed too, they do not want to be seperated. My parents who used to live in the house helped me a lot taking care of them.
I am a doctor with my own practice. My husband is a businessman, he makes more than $1m a year, although he only report $35,000 on the tax return.
We just moved to long island for better school one year ago. My husband was not happy with the location since he has to comute 25 minutes to work, he does not want the marital house. and he said he prefers to live in Queens after the divorce. and he wants the custody of my daughter.
Since he moved out, he comes home 3 times a week, spent 2 hours each time with kids, send kids to extracurriculum activities. Upon my request, he paid parttime nanny.
He hit my son once since he moved out but I did not call police.
He came home the night of the storm and left us in dark(outrages), but for the past 2 days, he slept in the guest room in the house.
My Questions are:
1. What is chance I got the custody of my two kids?
2. Do I have to pay him alimony
3. What can I do to increase my chance to get my kids' custody?
