Spousal support


#1

Dear Shaker:

Get a NEW ATTORNEY and file for post separation support TOMORROW! Of course there is stuff you can do. Your husband as a supporting spouse is obligated to support you. You may need a new attorney to turn up the pressure. Hire a BOARD CERTIFIED FAMILY LAW SPECIALIST or a firm with at least one on staff. Best of luck.

IS IT TRUE THAT ONCE YOU ARE SEPERARTED THAT THE PERSON WHO HAS LEFT NO LONGER HAS TO SUPPORT YOU. WHAT HE MAKES AFTER SEPERARTION IS HIS?
WE HAVE BEEN SEPRARTED FOR 28 DAYS BUT NO PAPERS HAVE BEEN DRAWN UP. HE HAS TAKEN HIS DIRECT MONEY DEPOSIT PAyCHECK AND MOVED IT INTO HIS OWN ACCOUNT. SAYS HE WILL PAY THE BILLS BUT WILL NOT PROVIDE FOR ME. I HAVE BEEN THE DEPENDENT SPOUSE/HOMEMAKER FOR 8 YEARS. ACCORDING THE ATTORNEY IM WORKING WITH HE SAYS THERE IS NOTHING THAT I CAN DO. I’M GOING TO SCHOOL RIGHT NOW AND HAVE NOT BEEN WORKING. IF THIS MAKES ANY DIFFERENCE WE HAVE BEEN MARRIED FOR 30 yrs this nov.
