Does this count as abandonment?


#1

If your husband has cut you off financially and has left you without the ability to support your children, then that may be considered abandonment.

if there is proof of an affair BEFORE the date of seperation, you can get (additional) alimony for adultry too.

While adultery is a factor that affects alimony, it does not always mean the dependent spouse will get more alimony.

Hi- thanks for reading.

I returned from my part time job to find my husband out of the house. He returned, drop our child off then for the following week only returned to get dressed for work then leave again. SOmeday during that week he told me to put all our stuff in storage, and go stay with my mom out of state (12 hours away). We already had an eviction notice, and since I did not make enough money to cover it (I work for tips) we knew we’d have to move out. Sometime during that last week he told me he was leaving me and had moved in with someone else.

I told him if he filed for divorce, he’d better own up to abandonment or else I would not agree- he says because of the eviction and the fact he sent me to live with relatives he did not abandon me. Is this true?

Also I have pictures of his new woman dated back since '06- hugging and embracing and this is the woman he has lived with and still lives with now (total of 6 months plus). He has admitted to sleeping with her even gone into detail about it with me. Will I be able to use adultery against him?
