My husband has asked me to devote my marriage to taking care of him and our children, who are now grown and on their own. He is a pastor who is resigning and there is evidence of another woman involved. I am willing to part peacefully, but I will need some help financially. I have recently acquired a part time job at Macy's for minimum wage and have been unable to secure a full time one as of yet.
We live in Will County in Illinois and apartments run around $1,200.00 in safe neighborhoods. We live in a townhouse on a golf course right now.
My husband just got a new job and is a retired Marine. His total income is $6,900.
He has asked me to tell him what I would need. I want to be fair. Could you please advise me on what is fair in this situation?
