I live in CT and am getting divorced. I have a lot of information about the misdeeds of my husband but we're in a collaborative divorce and I don't really want to get contentious. He makes a ton of money--probably $500,000 per year, we've been married 18 years and have two kids, 10 and 15. He wants to give me 9 years of alimony/child support. He is a lawyer, has worked our entire marriage, traveled, never been there for me or the kids. I have been home with the kids all these years, done some freelance work, but have basically been out of the work force.
I live in an expensive house he wants me to sell, wants to divide the property 55/45 (in my favor) and give me 50 percent alimony capped at $500,000 for 9 yrs. I have all children's expenses including private school, sports, etc.
I know I'm way better off than most people but live in an incredibly expensive area with huge housing costs/property taxes, etc.
Does this sound fair?
