Separation Agreement

If there is a signed separation agreement there may not be anything else you can do. Did the Separation Agreement deal with all your marital assets and the issue of alimony? You may be able to sue the third party for alienation of affection if this woman was the reason your marriage ended.

My husband and I separated 5 years ago with separation agreement and never divorced. If you look at my past postings you will see that he has committed bigamy. After this has been brought to light, now there are old friends telling me that he cheated though out our marriage and left me for anther woman. He had me completely snowballed. I had no idea he was even seeing anybody. He lied to me about everything and went to great lengths to hide everything. When we separated I was dealing with alot of medical problems. He was hiding money toward the end of our marriage and was able to talk me into bankruptcy because he was reckless with our money and hiding alot for when he left. I also found out when I went to another state for brain surgery, he hired a prostitute there and had his friend go to our bank and send him $800.00 to pay the rest of the money to pay for her fees. I had no idea anything was going on. He used my illness to deceive me.
Is there anything I can do now? He just now filing for the divorce because he thinks it will help his bigamy case.
