You are entitled to equitable distribution of marital property. In the event that you are a dependant spouse, you will also be entitled to alimony. I would advise you to find an attorney who can assist you in negotiating a settlement that is favorable for you.

Good luck.

… I’m fairly confident that my husband is being unfaithful. In the event that my suspicions are confirmed, I want to be completely prepared. My question is very general; but what I’m interested to know is what I’d be entitled to if we did divorce. We have been together 7 years (which I’m sure is irrelevant) & bought a house together 6 months before we were married. I don’t even know where to go or what to do.
Any help you can provide would be very much appreciated.
