My husband quit his job 3 1/2 years ago to start a business in FL. We moved from NH and I stayed home with our 3 kids. In this process he ran through our savings, lost our home and put us deeply in debt. He has had a job at 1/2 his previous salary for 2 years and refuses to go back to his previous profession or get a second job. I now have a full time office temp job and part time job. We live separately since June. He pays my car payment and insurance, $320 (his car is paid for) and gives me $180 a month to support the kids. I have no way of hiring a lawyer and don't know what my first step should be or what I am entitled to after 16 years of marriage and 3 children. right now he makes $40,787.00 gross, I make $26.520.00 gross with no benefits. Where do I start?
