Wife asked for a divorce 5 months ago but has yet to file. In this time she has been acting like she is already divorced. Talking to other men, partying with her single friends, going on vacations and spending money like crazy and staying over at friends house some weekends. I tried to work things out with her but she refused. I cant file cause I lost my job 5 months ago & have been struggling to find a new one. So my question is are there any moral or ethical rules she is breaking by living the life of a single person while she is still legally married? Can i use this against her to get alimony. Also she has always made around 4 times more than me in salary & has always paid most of the bills (but has paid the mortgage late twice already affecting my credit). Can i bill her my lawyer fee
Divorce is the process of formally ending a marriage. Divorces may be jointly agreed upon, resolved by negotiation, or decided in court.
A no-fault divorce is one in which all that is needed to end the marriage is a claim, by either spouse, that the marriage has broken down.
