What is the name of your state? Ohio
After months of thinking and several counseling sessions (me only) I beleive I will leave my wife soon...as soon as I can organize everything. Been married 22 years. No children. I make about $140,000 a year. She hasn't worked outside the home for many years and only has a high school education and no real skills. She worked as a receptionist when we first were married and later cleaned houses part time (off the record). We own a house and I beleive neither of us would want to stay there if we're divorced (too big, too expensive).
- Should I pay her some support money when I leave since she has no income?
- I assume I should try to pay all the bills myself?
-...and cancel all joint accounts?
- What can I expect the courts to decide for spousal support, and how long will I be expected to pay it?
- Am I hurting my case in any way be leaving my residence? (Other forums tell me don't leave, make her leave instead, but I don't see that as an option for me.)
