Out of nowhere, in March, he stopped paying his half of the rent and in September he began paying $200 less. I believe he may be paying child support and want to know if I have a right to know that information? He also will not move out of the residence however I want him out ASAP. We've been together 5yrs and have a 4yr old child. He said he will give me the divorce but what are my chances that the judge will agree from a legal standpoint?
How sure are you that he had a child with someone else while the two of you were married? It seems you are making an assumption. If you can prove that he has a child with someone else while the two of you were married you may be able to get a divorce under the ground of adultery. If not then I would need to know more information to see if any of the other grounds for divorce apply.
