My husband plans to divorce me under the new law. I retained a lawyer, but now I honestly don't know why. She tells me that I can't fight the divorce, that maintenance is all determined by a formula, and that special circumstances/considerations don't matter. Aside from plugging numbers into a calculator (which I can do myself) and sending me a bill for it, she hasn't done anything. All she says when I ask is that maybe he will negotiate, which is presumably when she would do something. But I know he won't negotiate, and he has no reason to if she is correct about the new law. If everything is as pre-determined as she indicates, what is the point in spending money I don't have on a lawyer? (She told me that under the new law, he would have to pay for my lawyer; now she's wobbly on that.)
