I am sorry this happened. You may pursue support, and distirbution of assets. Normally assets obtained during the marriage are split equally as a rought estimate. You will want to hire a divorce lawyer, and your spouse would be asked to cover those legal fees.

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.
