Exactly. This sucks. Why can't people be required to function and take responsibility for themselves? Eh? Oh, yeah. Did I neglect to mention that I am also financially helping my youngest son who will start his first year of college this fall? You'll notice I said "I"?

Because some don't, be it living off alimony, child support or a combination of both. In your place, ya, you probbly have to do a lump sum and mve on but don't think the parasite is done.

Yes dad - because of your last comment....if I settle on a lump sum as property settlement and get him to sign off on maintenance.....what else can he do? Never having done this battle before, I just have no idea.

Fight not to pay SS. Don't just assume that you will be paying.

I agree 100000% your incomes are hardly different. Do not offer a thing.

That's my hope. I know he's going to try it, but there isn't much difference in income. I'm just not sure how much the "alcoholic card" is going to be played and how much weight it carries. I go to court July 8 for order to show cause and I will post the outcome of that.

Keep posting comments though. It's more fodder to take to my lawyer and I appreciate it.

Just because he is an alcoholic does not mean he is not responsible for his behavior. A judge will look more poorly upon him especiallu if he admits it. That card won't be played and if it is, it will hurt him.

In WI, nothing. They won't revisit SS after the final decree is issued. If he agrees and signs off, then that's that.

That is not correct. Maintenance, even so called permanent maintenance, may be revisited. It can terminate or be reduced in certain circumstances such as a substantial change of circumstances after the divorce including: retirement, disability or changes in either parties resources or need for maintenance.

I think I liked the other answer better. :-)

I will be going after potential future earnings for his business too, if he decides to go for maintenance. I hope he doesn't. That's the piece that will make this all very ugly.
