How badly will I be hit.
      11/19/11 01:17 PM

I live in NY - we've been married 12 years.
W is 45 I am 47.
She has a degree but quit work when our oldest daughter was born. I never completed college - but have been lucky with my career to reach this position.

Two daughters.
D9 (has cerebral palsy and goes to special needs school) - will always need care and attention.
D6 - No issues or problems.

W has worked 3 nights a week in an upscale restaurant.
W has asked for divorce - I don't want one, but I have no choice - she doesn't love me anymore (I suspect infidelity).

I earn $155k a year - W earns about $16k a year.

I've offered her a 60/40 split of our assets (my 401k, +ive equity in house, her 401k - in her favor).
Standard child support (as per NY state guidelines).
$1k a month spousal support for 6 years).

This would be about 45% of my take home pay in CS and SS.
W wants $2k a month lifetime - which would take closer to 60% of take home pay.

I'd rather go through mediation than litigation if possible - Does anyone have an opinion on who is closer re: spousal support?

Thanks in advance
