My case is in Will County in the state of Illinois. My divorce proceedings started in August of last year. Custody was determined since the end of last year when I had an attorney. I have continued this case pro se because I ran out of funds since I have been paying for all the bills at my soon to be ex-wife's residence. I have payed the mortgage in full granted all properties and continue to pay for her car, my son's car, utility bills, medical, life, auto and home insurance, cable, internet, etc. I recently received a proposal where she agrees to accept all the property paid in full, accept the child support but still wants maintenance way beyond my means for 10yrs! Is there a way I can just counter propose a lesser amount in front of a judge and also expedite the court date?
