No, she does not owe you everything that you paid for. When you married, you did so "for better of worse." And now you are experiencing the "worse" part. Any agreement that was made for her to get a job and split everything should have been timely enforced throughout the marrige. By not doing so, you effectively waived the right to now enforce the agreement. In sum, it is simply now too late to do so.

NOTE: I realize that this answer may not be entirely to your liking, and I regret being the bearer of information that you really don’t want to hear. But it would be unfair to you and unprofessional of me were I to provide you with anything less than truthful and honest information. I hope you understand.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

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.

TonyApopka, FL

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
