Married 10 yrs, stay home mom. Ex's income $160,000. We had a two day trial by a judge. I cant afford a lawyer but my husband(ex) did. I was a bit sloppy but I had a lot of credible evidence on several issues. PROOF of hidden $, custody recommend 50/50, my support needs & my share of property,etc. The judge asked us to make a prop judgement I didnt understand & I sent mine to the court & did not file it. I didn't know how it worked. I assumed that if there was a problem I would be notified, so they must have received it. I thought that I had to just note what I like or didn't like about it. His proposal was unfair, incomplete & lied on what they said in court. He got our home, gave him 80% custody of our 3kids & lowered CS & 90% of the prop, but the judge just signed it!
