i’m not sure what you mean by that. We will have been seperated a year in November. I am still paying all his bills. Our other two children spend equal amount of time with both of us. When I file for the divorce do we need to have everything split equal? Because he claims he doesn’t have the money to pay for his own power, cable, phone, etc… the only thing that he pays now is the mortgage payment. Do you know if a lawyer will work with payment arrangements? I’m a little strapped paying for 3 kinds and two households.
Thank you

In the future, if you are going to instant message me and then insult me, despite the fact that I am providing you answers to questions at 11:30 P.M. during my own time(and then you have the audacity to say that I don’t have compassion), then please do not abuse this privilege. This is a service, not a requirement and we do it willingly. Without an apology, I will not answer your remaining questions, and you can wait on one of the other attorneys to provide you a response, if they do one at all.

I do have compassion for anyone going through this process, including you. I am sorry that your situation is so tough financially, but obtaining the legal services you are seeking come at a price. I even provided you a referral for someone that may do a payment arrangement for you and you still had the nerve to insult me.

We are willing, and do, provide legal advice for free on this forum and your statements to me in the instant message were uncalled for and hurtful. May your situation come to a happier resolution than this post has. Thank you.

I do apologize for insulting you. I have been very discouraged because i don’t have any help. And i don’t know where to start. And i felt like i was being judged. I am aware that everything comes at a price. It’s hard not knowing how to handle this and where to start. I don’t expect any answers from anyone on here. Because i’ve come to learn that the answers aren’t there. I have to find them.

Dear jenniferphilippe:

Greetings. I would never judge you. I only wish that we could help everyone that needs our help. I am also sorry that you feel like you cannot find answers here.

When you file for divorce, if you want to divide property, you must first file a claim for equitable distribution or you will lose everything.

Finally, yes, I do know that some attorneys may assist with the financial payments of their clients. Thank you.

I have been married for 3 years, my husband and i have been seperated for 9 months. I had an affair while we were married and got pregnant. The baby has her fathers last name. Is that going to be a problem during the divorce? Meaning the baby has her fathers last name, during the divorce am I going to have to prove that? My ex husband and I have two children together, and we have worked out the visitation together. He isn’t contesting anything, and he also knows the baby is not possibly his.
