When my husband told me he wanted a divorce, I was floored. It was something I was not expecting at all. I knew he had spent a lot of time at work, but I thought that our time together was going just fine. We have three children together, and I am a stay-at-home mom because we did not want a babysitter or nanny raising our kids. He makes excellent money with his job, so it was not a problem. After I realized he was having an affair, I went to http://www.hechtfamilylaw.com/areas-served/johns-creek/ because my sister advised me that I needed to take care of myself and my children.
My ex did not want me to have any alimony nor did he want to pay child support. He wanted custody of all three children because his new girlfriend wanted to be a mom. That is when my anger took over, and I contacted the law firm that my sister recommended to me. I talked to a lawyer there about everything that had happened, and I explained that my children didn’t really know their father very well since he spent the majority of his time at work.
I had talked to the kids about where they wanted to live, and all three of them told me that they were not leaving me. I did not have to worry about him getting custody because the legal team that took on my case did their homework and made sure that my children and I would be well taken care of. Not only did I get to keep the home that we have lived in since we were married ten years ago, but he is also paying both child support and alimony. I thought I would miss him, but I am finding out that life is pretty sweet on our own!
