So my stbxkicked our 4 kids and i out June 3rd of 2012. After we were out his Dad,step mom,brother and sister had moved in and my kids rooms got packed and all their stuff moved out to the garage. They are limited to sleeping on the floor or couch in the living room during overnight visits. Our original arrangement that we had was the kids would be with me sunday-friday since i live 1block away from the kids school and when they have extra days off they were to stay with him. that lasted till Jan. when he had accepted a promotion and his schedule changed. now he wants the kids after school tuesday to whenever he decided to drop them off which is about 8/9 and wednesday the same thing and saturday from when he decided to wake up and pick them up which is usually around 5/6. As far as any financial help he has given me $500 total since June. These last 2 months he has been very inconsistent with his visitation with the kids today i finally had asked him if i could just keep the kids with me monday-friday since they are in school and he has them on weekends but he refuses. so now to my questions.
With this said,i have an appt with a lawyer next week who said he can help me file for divorce and bankruptcy.
1)how long does it take to finalize a divorce?
2)do you have to file for child support seperatly?
3) would a judge give him any sort of custody for not having rooms or beds for our kids?
