Greetings. The majority of your questions are ones that must be answered by an attorney directly (over the phone or in their office during an initial consultation). Let’s see what I can answer for you though:
The process takes only as long as it must for the both of you to come to an agreement if you have an attorney who drafts quickly and sets up meetings in a timely manner. Please see our fee calculator to determine how much the process would cost in our office.
This would need to be answered in an initial consultation.
Generally the answer is no, your wife is not entitled to anything that you earn after the date of separation. Now, if you buy something with marital funds, she is entitled to her fair share of that item.
Best of luck and let us know if we can help.
