Legal Answers
Q. Can I get the money I paid back since he was not there and was in military. Doesn't the custodial parent have to notify
A: If the supported child no longer has a right to support, an argument of fraud may be made, for its return in an action against the other parent. The amount of money you would get back will determine if it is economical. However, you should seek modification of the support order as well. Consult an attorney immediately.
Q. How will substance abuse impact divorce?Also, my wife makes $180,000/year and I make $56,000/yearMightI get alimony?
A: You have a short term marriage so spousal maintenance, if any, will be short and/or less than a longer term marriage. Substance abuse may be a factor, but if helps or hurts you depends on who has it and consequences. Leaving a marital residence voluntarily may be considered abandonment of it regarding one's right to live there after divorce papers are filed. It seems you have complicated factors in your situation and you must consult a divorce attorney to get meaningful detailed advice.
