I posted last night that my husband took our 5 year old to his moms and said he filed for divorce last week. He said his attorney told him not to leave her side (he has no job, i do) so he is taking her out of preschool and is at his moms. Side note : I am bi-polar and this is the main thing he will use against me. I am on meds, but have had "episodes" before. I am obviously getting attorney on Tuesday. For those of you that have done this before. Please help me start thinking of what questions I need to ask attorney. So far i have
1) Living arrangements, He wants all three of us to stay together because his attorney said he cant leave or it would be abandonment, I cant emotionally handle that, its not best for daughter.
2) Can I file temporary custody
3) He has no job and has not since December...I asked him to take her out of preschool then so we could save money and he said no. (He usually never spends time with her) Now he said he is not taking her to school anymore and is not leaving her side per his attorneys advice. I want her to stay in school and keep her "normal" life
4)When we both worked for 5 years he told me not to put money in a 401k because we needed my money to pay bills. He put double money in his 401k. He used his 401k to pay for his divorce attorney. Can I make him pay for mine? Isn't half that money mine?
What other questions do i need to ask. I know you dont know a lot about my specific situation....but what do I need to take with me to attorney What am I not thinking of> Any help would be great.
