My husband filed a divorce petition that I contested. During mediation he wouldn't negotiate at all so the case has gone to court. He changed the password on the bank accounts so I don't have access. He pays some bills and gives me $800 per month randomly. That's not even close to... View More
It seems odd your attorney wouldn't address your short term need at the onset. You should be seeking temporary support and requesting he pay your attorney fees.

Can I ask that he pay a portion of the bills that I paid during that time, in the divorce? My monthly income is $4,000 and his monthly income is $4,000 - $6,000. Also, I got him the job that he has now. He told me that I am not entitled to any of his income.
Unless there is a prenuptial agreement that states otherwise, your incomes would be marital property. You can ask that he pay a portion of the bills that you paid during that time, I don't know what the judge will do.

She has gaslighted me, attempted AND succeeded to ruin my reputation, my career, and has used knowledge of very personal matters (like past sexual and physical abuse) against me and even took my kids and dogs to my abusers house 4 weeks ago (my parents) and told them all of my secrets. I asked her... View More
