Between quiting my job 14 years ago to stay home with my children, then developing severe depression along with being bipolar, I haven't made much of a career for myself. On the other hand, my wife now makes close to $200,000 a year. We're getting a divorce and have agreed to 50/50 child custody. I'm having issues accepting both child support and alimony. We live in California. She wants to keep the house which means she'd have to buy me out and double the mortgage payments, then pay me both alimony and child support which could total $3000 a month. Can she afford to do this? Can I afford not to? I would like my kids when with me to live as well as they would be living with my STBX in our old home. I currently do not make much of a living, but I do have a solid business opportunity that may one day ease my wife's alimony burden. Your thoughts?
