I did tell my divorce atty I was filing and how i was filing and he didnt advise me not to, of course he hasn't done much of anything for me. I understand the dissipation aspect but when i claimed dissipation for my husband supporting his girlfriend and her daughter it was denied. He admitted she pays no rent or utilities; isn't that dissipation? He made 90K i made 38K, i'm not wasting funds by any means. I realize its hard to answer questions w/out all the facts. thx
