Any family lawyers out there?
Been married 9 years, dx parky 2 years ago and now my wife wants out. She is breadwinner and I work in a school part time where our 7 year old goes. We intend to agree joint custody but he'll be living with me most due to his schooling and wife's hours at work.
1. I have limited earnings potential as my Parky gets worse so should I ask for a spousal maintenece payment. If she hadn't ended the marriage my future was financially secure but now I'll be reliant on benefits to make ends meet.
2. She tells me she doesn't have to pay any child maintenance if it's joint custody? I earn less than a taxable amount per annum and she earns about 60k.
I'm 45 and the stress is not good for my symptoms so any advice please.
