Legal Question

Asked on: 7/29/03, 4:12 pm

What are my rights in this divorce?

Situation:

6 years of marriage. in our 30s

She had 4 affairs and now that I know, we are splitting up.

Our assets and debts are pretty equal and we agree on them. First question: She took on a $40K student loan before we were married and I helped support her through school with my job (her employment has been spotty). Since the loan was taken on before we were married (but living together for a year at that point), do we have to divide that, or is it all hers like we think it is (she does not think I should have to help with it either so that is good) but what does the law say?

Second question: Am I entitled to more than 50% given that she had affairs and I helped put her through school for an advanced degree?
