When is it appropriate to vary from the 50/50 distribution? If a wife is depenndent and disabled–and has no means of income–and the husband is retired and has a life stye enhannced by an inheritance, is it legitimate to ask for more than 50/50 of his income, which is a tiny fraction of his resources?
How do Triangell area courts look on the argument that the “other factors” in equal distribution come into play? In this case, the other factors end up contributing to large didfferences in standard of living, relegating me to poverty (a rapid lowering of my standard of living from the middle claass–to food stamps, charity and uncertain medical and monthly resources). This leads to a cycle of unpiad bills, debt and low credit wihch further undermines my ability to have a relatively relaxed life. Ironically, my spouse became abusive–the term indginities fits–yet the current agreement on thte table would only prolong indignities of another kind. If I could work I would.
- how would the court decide what was equal and fair here?
- should I aassume I have the right to a stadnard off lviing that resembles my old one–or at least provides ad equate housing and sustenance?
- his income is small, but his other ersources are big–and some undisclosed’
- oh–how does one find accounts that are nontaxable–and undisclosed? Could I do it–or does it require legal action?
