Re: Walk away spouse and finances.. advice?
So, here's where I am.
I now have the address to send the separation papers. My attorney is updating the ones I had done last year.
Last year's version gave her the car and a cash payment of a few thousand in exchange for her signing everything else - business, home, investment, truck back into my name.
This year's version offers no exchange, just the provisions for her to sign everything back.
I told the lawyer to hurry. She's in a mood to prove that she can make it on her own... with OP's help of course. I need to get to her while she's in this proving mood and before she figures out an alcoholic felon cannot support her.
As far as possessions, she has all of her stuff. I have all of mine.
She has no access to any of the accounts. And I'm not paying for anything that benefits her except driver's insurance which ends on Friday.
A year ago, I would have been appalled at myself for being so harsh, but this year. I want out and I don't want to share any of the benefits of this marriage.
I can't believe I was paying for her car, her phone, her insurance and gave her access to an account while she was off cheating last year.
Thank God we didn't have kids together.
