My husband has been unemployed for about 8 months, ever since leaving the military. He claims he's trying to get a job, but he's really not. In reality, he's sleeping all day, playing video games, and going out at all hours of the night without telling me where he's really going.
If I divorce him, I have several concerns:
1) Since he's not working, will he be obligated to pay child support? Can the judge make him get a job?
2) Since I'm the only breadwinner, will I have to pay him spousal support?
3) Who gets to stay in the house? If we separate before divorce, is it better to kick him out of the house rather than having me and the kids leave?
