I have been going through a bitter divorce and trying financial times for over a year now and am a little frustrated with the answers I’m getting from my attorney. I’m hoping to get some advice on the following issues:
Divorce is final but ED, post-separation support and alimony still issues. Have a new fiance but she won’t marry me until we know if ex can come after combined household money. Can the ex get her greedy paws on any of my new wife’s (when she’s my wife) income for support or child support??
I am unemployed and have some medical issues - ex has a part-time job. House that ex lives in and that has been for sale for over a year is nearing foreclosure and ex is threatening to take kids to hometown out of state before the end of the school year. Can I stop her from doing this? Can I fight for custody since I have a relatively stable financial household (especially if the answer to question #1 is favorable)? Is there a chance in Hell of a father (especially an unemployed father) getting custody? The questions in my mind is (a) stability which I can supply and (b) opportunity - the hometown the ex will take the kids to is EXTREMELY poverty-stricken and has one of the lowest reputations for schools, whereas now they are in an affluent area and good schools.
I would like some opinions and thoughts. This is very difficult - I don’t want to lose my children to geography!
