Details: Spouse just left to parents with two children out of the blue. Because of the abnormality of this event, I'm weary about what possibly could come next. Not worried about assets, because foreclosure is taking that away. If the worst case scenario(divorce) were to happen, I could see spouse being influenced to come after alimony. With the economy playing a major role in loss of annual income,(less than 3k a mo. net). Its a struggle just to survive single. I'm thinking being the male, and the spouse using the children as pawns, it would be easy for the courts to force contributions to non-contributing spouse. The child support issue, it seems one in my shoes would have to gain custody, just to keep it fair. As in, if we are done, just walk away and I will too. Please advise thx
