She has more education, but when I left, after years of begging her to change her negative, mean spirited attitude, she quit her full time job for a part time job with less pay that will eventually be full time with equal pay. She is trying to say I deserted her & was adulterous, which is not true. She left our house after not paying for many months & got a more expensive apt & storage unit for other items. She dropped her car off on my door to stick it to me & bought another car. She is obviously trying to stick it to me but my current attorney says she will take half the retirement & deserves alimony. I pay child support. We have made nearly the same our entire marriage until her quitting now. She has more education. I cannot even afford what she is asking. She is not compromising.
Divorce is the process of formally ending a marriage. Divorces may be jointly agreed upon, resolved by negotiation, or decided in court.
Alimony is the regular monetary allowance one ex-spouse may be required to pay the other after a divorce.
