"how do i stop her from just wasting everything we have left?"

----> I wish I had an answer to THAT question.. I would be a couple hundred thousand dollars richer now...



"I get a sense this whole thing is on auto pilot and none of the details seem to matter."

---> There are many "details" that unfortunately don't matter in the eyes of the law..


IMHO, what I have learned through the many years on my ongoing trial is that (even if you have a lawyer) you have to educate yourself on what areas the law can help you and what areas it cannot..

$300/wk in SS by case law was/is to be expected...

The free use of a credit card is questionable.

Sometimes my attorney gives my ex enough rope to hang himself.

If your stbx is "not rational" and is bent on "wasting everything"; letting her have the credit card is a good way of giving her rope.

Perhaps your attorney/judge is hoping to let her show her true colors.

If you get a statement that indicates that she is wantonly "dissapating marital assets" and then you will have grounds to hold her solely responsible for the credit card.

In the end, you "could" be rewarded a larger share of the distribution of assets.


You seem smart and rational and like you are trying to do the "right thing".

Start thinking like a lawyer. Gather irrefutable evidence if you believe that she is "wasting everything we have left".

Conserve your strength and fight issues where the law is on your side and don't work so hard pushing that rock uphill when the law is clearly on her side...
