The new alimony reform act will come into law and is actually being adopted by many judges now before its formal enactment in March.

    Answered . How do you know he only went on two dates and that sex wasn't involved?

If you have significantly less income it certainly may. Speak with an experienced family attorney in your area to discus the particulars of your matter and see what steps would be most advantageous for you.
