About Me:
Currently going through a painful divorce. We have an 8 month old boy who is the primary concern. Spending way too much money on the lawyer and my soon to be ex is making my life a living hell....long story short! Just looking to talk to other people who are in the same situation.

Single Parents in the NYC area

I am a single parent living in Brooklyn NY. I care for my son from Wed nights through Sat afternoon. My ex lives in our NJ house with our son the rest of the time. I am curious about finding other single parent communities / gatherings where single parents get together with their kids and talk, share experiences and activities etc.

Can I just drop my current lawyer? And by letting her use the house do I still pay some of the mortgage? I watch our son from Wed night to Sat afternoon. Am I still obligated to pay child support? I guess these are things we can agree on. I believe I found this site during my search online. There is also Park Slope parents and Divorce Support.

PLEASE get out of the fighting in court mindset and come up with a win/win. You do NOT have to give her your half of the house. You can let her use it until the child is a certain age and then you can sell it and split the proceeds. What you want to tell her is that you now understand that getting lawyers set this up to be a conflict when it should have been a cooperative effort for the two of you to find the best solutions. Find a good mediator now and get out of the court rat race where the only winners are the lawyers. If you want some support, send her to my website to watch the movies or listen to the audio. The law is not the same in CA but the spirit is right. Show how did you end up here? Who invited you in?

We do both have lawyers. I've spent close to $20,000 now and we are still not separated! I'm thinking about giving her my half of the house so our son will grow up on a dead end street, with a nice back yard and with good schools. Also, close to her mom and sister who has 2 children. She's very upset and suffers from depression so it's been very hard to come to an agreement on anything. I think sitting down with a mediator would take out some of the emotion.

I don't know the law in New York but I do know that you and your wife have a LONG co-parenting relationship ahead of you and to start WWIII at this point in the game isn't good. Do both of you have your own lawyers? If so that is probably half the problem. Attorneys sometimes stir people up to keep them hot so they will keep fighting. That is how they get paid the most.

From your window and the view out your window it looks like you are in New York. Is that true?

Withholding: A Down Payment, not a Tax

In my experience, many people do not know the difference between the withholding amount (the taxes deducted on your pay stub) and their tax liability. All they know is that they don’t have the money. They think they’re square with the government, and are surprised if they owe any amount on top of what was withheld. That’s why I thought it would be useful to review the…See More

Divorce & Support Payments – When Can You Use it to Qualify for a Mortgage?

One of the things I have learned over the years is that we cannot be a Jack-of-all-trades and a master-of-none. In today’s ever-changing world, we need to have connections with professionals in other disciplines and specialities. This is especially true with divorce professionals. I think it is important that practitioners have a network of specialists on which to draw. Today I am going to do just…See More
