WHAT?WHAT?WHAT?WHAT?WHAT? You paid an attorney $100,000 and still counting to separate your property and get you alimony? Are you serious?!?!?!
Have your attorney set the final hearings. Keep your head up and go to the hearing. I know that it is scary, but you have to practice your testimony, be prepared, stay in (or get into) counseling for yourself and the anxiety court brings, and have faith.
Equalizing distributions is a typical situation, even though it feels unfair. Splitting out of pocket health insurance and forcing you to obtain employment is also typical, especially if your child is older. Judges take time on attorney fees, but if your attorney follows up at an appropriate time and requests a ruling, the judge will make an order, probably in your favor. Best of luck and let us know any other specific questions.
