How do I make sure I get what I need from my divorce without making it messy?
My husband and I will be married 5 years in September. On June 21st I found out he is cheating and he moved out of our apartment until I can gather my belongings and move to my parents. I work part time and he works full time. We only have money to split and we have a car loan out. We are trying to keep costs down by not involving lawyers because we want to have some money in each of our hands after the divorce. We are not filing for divorce until January so I have plenty of time to find a full time job before being kicked off his insurance. The only thing I really want or even need is some type of help or compensation for the car. My husband has a work truck and personal truck and has no need for another truck. I don't think we qualify for any type of alimony paid out and I don't want it. I don't want his 401k. I just want to make sure the car is covered and cut my losses. I'm beyond angry at the circumstances of our divorce and would love to rake him through the coals but 2 wrongs don't make a right. I'm asking for out of this is not to file until January so I have time to find a full time job with no lap in health insurance and some type of help with the car.
