My husband and I want to file for divorce after 18 years of marriage. We have (2) children ages 18 and 17. So far amicable. He wants to be the petitioner and was going to originally file on the no-fault. I did commit the act of infidelity, and he has lots of proof of that, and I won't deny that. He now wants to file on the fault ground of aduletry. It is mostly being done to protect as much of his 401K and not to pay alimony. I get that. He makes over 75K a year, I have worked part-time to stay at home with the kids. I make 20K. We have lived together since the infidelty.
I want this over with and to move on. I realize I will not get alimony, and my chance to support myself would be some kind of settlement with our other assets. I won't fight a thing. Is this logical?Thank you all for your answers. I did not add the below. Believe it or not I am college educated and work for the Cobb County School Systems. I just want this over: He also wants to at settlement subtract the amount of our second mortgage against the cash payout of the 401K. He is paying for the lawyer you will obviously represent him,and not me.
