My future brother in law is getting a divorce from his wife of 7 years. She is 26 and has a 9 year old child from a teen marriage as well as a 4 year old from this marriage. (numbers are aprox)
She has an 8th grade educ. and has never worked. For the past 7 years she has been a house wife and stay at home mother. But she was not very good at either. She wants the divorce. He tired to work it out for the child. They could not work things out.
They orginally agreed to have a civil break up- no courts or lawyers. She was going to keep the new car that he bought for her and pay her payments which would be the 'child support' and he would keep the daughter when ever.
He was to keep the house since he works 3 jobs to pay for it.
Anyway she got a lawyer, who filled her head with $ signs and she called him to tell him that she just wanted him to know that she is going to be living in the house, while he pays for it, she keeps the car, he is going to be paying her child support and alimony b/c she can not be expected to get a job and she is going to take him for everything that he has got.
Is this likely? He says that he is not going to fight it b/c he is not interested in this court room drama.
Can she get all those things just like that?
