Who the person I was married to really was.


People can be shadier than I ever even imagined and lawyers can be evil, sneaky sons of nutcrackers who don’t give a damn about the family involved. Divorce is the worst.


The kind of shit you see coming out is mind blowing...


It’s been 14 months since we separated I am still amazed by the shit that gets cooked up; just be mature and pragmatic and be done with it


Oh man... that is what i tell everyone... you really don’t know someone until you go through a divorce with them...


Agreed. I barely recognize the person my ex turned into

Anyone knows how alimony works ? In terms of salary ? How much more than your partner do you need to make, to be granted alimony… I’m asking because I have seen cases where one person sacrifices themselves studying and working hard, while the other person is basically doing the bare min, and they can get alimony if they separate ? In some cases, for life.

Hi all, looking for recommendations for a divorce lawyer in Houston area. Any recommendations would be helpful.


Only divorce services for uncontested and amicable divorces

My husband repeatedly claims domestic abuse falsely, and it’s getting too much. Now that I have kids he has started saying this to them and they say it back to me. I think he does this because he wants custody of kids or an upper hand when it comes to finances if we end up divorcing. Any ideas on how to handle this

I live in VA, been married for 6 years and have no kids. My spouse and I are just separated and about to get divorced in a month. My spouse left their job a year after we married due to which, I need.

Sadly this is where I ended up (going through divorce with 6mo infant). Abusive spouse wants shared custody when he doesn’t know a thing about taking care of an infant.. any advice would help re custody or divorce as well. We are not in speaking terms

How do I know if I am ready for a divorce?
