Greetings. Let’s see if I can help:
Probably not. You will be paying alimony though.
Yes, the contributions to a party’s education or career succes is taken into account by the judge. No, they cannot “force” her to work, but the judge can order less alimony so that she gets the hint that working is not an option.
Yes, she will be entitled to half of the equity and half of the debt.
No, it is not likely that she will have to sell her vehicle even if you are willing to give her your vehicle.
You SHOULD NOT leave unless you have a separation agreement signed. Thank you.
