Does this sound like your topic?
1) I would like my wife to pay spousal support (she makes approximately $4200 per month and I make $ 2000). Based on my investigation, it looks like a general starting point is: take 40% of your wife's net monthly income, subtract 50% of your monthly income, and this will give you an approximate amount of potential spousal support. It looks like I will only get $300. I am having trouble with such a small amount?
2) Approximately, $15,000 has been spent on home improvements during our 7 1/2 year marriage. I am thinking that I can get half of this, although, my wife says that most of this was maintenance? 3) She has approximately $15,000 in her checking account that she told me came from an account that she had before we got married? Do I get ½ of this? Is jewelry always a gift?
