You will only be out of a job if you quit... or get fired...and if he fires you without just cause then you can take him to the labour board... unfortunately family law will not touch on that subject... you are STILL working currently, and you are asking about "what ifs"... since you are still working for his company, you still have your job, therefore you are not suffering.

So he still has a business worth $1 million? I am sure once that gets equalized, you will have more than enough to start over or even retire, no?

This sure is different information than i got from my free 1/2 consult. She said I was entitled and he would have to keep paying me a salary as well as support. I am seeing another lawyer Monday i will see what he says.

if you were (and still are) working for him then i am thinking that is covered under labour laws so he cannot just fire you without cause.

A lawyer will tell you anything but they cannot say how a judge will see it so take it with a grain of salt.

How much do you think you are entitled to?

k so what if he put his kids thru university??? Good for him. Did he have the boat before you were married??

So his kids work for him and he pays them a wage and they have a car benefit.

Arabian will be able to give you advice on proving income in a business, so she will pipe up on this soon I think.

Clearly you are still in the early stages, but you will find out soon enough what family law is like... What you feel and think is irrelevant. Why would you fault him for putting his children through school?


One thing to remember, most lawyers will tell you what you want to hear and if you go to a lawyer with all your emotional responses you can expect a high legal bill. You should educate yourself on the Spousal Support Guidelines before you see a lawyer.

I am very familiar with the spousal support guildlines. I gave up my job to help him with his kids and his business. Now that the marriage is ending why should I have to go and star all over with a new job at 52. He still has his job and his business and his boys working for him to suppport him, Yes he had the boat before me.
