Here's our case:
Married for 5 years with 1 kid (2 yrs) ; 2 dogs; property under my name is currently on short sale ( in FL), he is an active duty military so both mine and our son's insurance is under his; we are renting a house in our current state (VA) and lease will be ending in feb 2014; we are required to be separated for at least a yr before we can file for divorce ( in our state); no property owned together; both our financed cars are under my name; he will soon go back to deployment this January and to be with his b!tch again while me and my son and MY dogs are moving to a different state in February. Once our separation term is over then I file of divorce in the state of VA.
Any suggestions? Besides the basic child support, full custody, health insurance, alimony, etc?
Any input will be appreciated...
Is he going to keep paying for the cars too?
Write up your monthly budget-- everything from rent to utilities, down to new socks and toilet paper. (Dog food!). Submit your budget asking for the percentage your need-- in my case he was expected to keep paying a portion of all house bills, groceries, utilities, etc because I was working part time.
Separation is supposed to be short term, but think long term.
