My spouse has filed for divorce. We currently own property together and have a 3 year old girl. My spouse doesn't work and I am the only wage earner - but claims to want to start working again. We are agreeable how to split finances. Neither wants alimony from the other. Not sure what the law says regarding:
1. lf the divorce petition is withdrawn (to try again), is there a way to permanently split finances? Almost like a post nuptial agreement? This way each keeps what they make in future.
2. Would retirement assets such as 401K, IRA, Roth, etc. be split as well or does one keep his/her retirement assets?
3. If we divorce, would either have a claim to alimony if the other starts making a lot more money in the future?
