Legal Question

Asked on: 10/30/13, 7:10 am

In January 2013, I filed for a divorce on the grounds of cruelty (verbal and mental) in Fairfax County, VA. My questions are:

My attorney keeps saying that because both my husband and I net about the same, a judge will not award me support. I have asked my attorney why when my husband makes $400 more a month.

My legal expenses -- my attorney keeps saying that the judge will not award this either. Why? I was forced to flee the marriage. If I had not been forced to flee the marriage, I would not have incurred these expense.

Are Virginia Judges really that indifferent to abused spouses?
