My ex was having an affair and when he was caught, filed for divorce. 10 yr marriage 3 children. I was a stay home mom with 3 kids. Im with them 90% of my life. My husband had always been abusive (not physical). First court hearing the judge awarded my ex physical custody 50%, gave him temp possession of our house and ordered me to move out. Then the judge ordered me to get all of my stuff out too. Even though it was a temp order and we hadn't got to the "property " issues yet. (meaning I still owned half) AND he has a 2 hour commute to his office AND he was the one who filed for the divorce and cheated.
The judge said that it would be UNFAIR on my ex to have to pay the mortgage and taxes, and then have to pay CS as well Best interest of kids? Or husbands financial situation?
