Been married for almost 12 years. My husband is in the process of leaving because we don't fit into his social schedule (read partying) and is unhappy because I am not jumping for joy when he finally graces us with his presence. He's seen a lawyer and has started the process. My problem is that he and his partner own a business. His lawyer "suggested" that we divide up the assets ourselves and come to an agreement and then, Only then, get me a lawyer to finalize it. We live in a marital property state. We purchased the business in 2002 using our house as collateral. The business is marital property according to the lawyer I found. He is quite a bulldog and wants to make sure I get mine. My problem is how far do I take it? I want the house, but we owe on it. My lawyer, who is great, says that the STBX wants me to leave the business alone, then he can pay for the house, my car, etc. Like I said - He's a bulldog! Do I tell my lawyer to go for it? It will be contested and it will drag on & on. I have a son to think about, also. BTW, The STBX came home about a year ago with a legal doc stating I needed to sign it. It was a doc that said, in case of divorce I let go of any claim on the business. My mama didn't raise no fool. I refused. Any advice is appreciated.
