My son and his wife came to an agreement and filed divorce papers themselves, without a lawyer, because neither could afford one. Her mother is now threatening my son that if he doesn't change his mind on an issue, she will hire a lawyer. She knows that he cannot afford one.
The wife has been having affairs ever since they were married. They live in Georgia, and she had been making plans to move to Chicago to be with her boyfriend since before she filed the divorce papers. She’s claiming it’s because of work, but she was the one who put in the transfer to go there, and has already been to Chicago to visit her boyfriend.
They are 20 days into filing the divorce papers with the court. They also have a 6-year old son together, and have agreed in the papers as to how custody and visitation will work between them.
