Stockbridge, GA asked in Divorce for Georgia

Q: My husband gets his legal benefits on January 1, 2023. He is acting very shady. Should I take action before then?

I left the home five months ago. He refuses to talk about the divorce or any division of property until after the holidays. But suddenly he wants to start paying the mortgage. And was quite adamant about it. What can he take from me? We are hardly high asset

A: I'm not sure what benefits he's getting, or what you're concerned about him taking from you, but no one can answer a specific question without reviewing your financial situation and assets and debts. Part of the divorce process is having your attorney review that information and then give you advice regarding what the divorce outcome could look like. If you want a divorce, you do not have to wait for him to be ready for it.
