If you get a good lawyer, they should be able to argue that by paying for her education, you have set her so that she can support herself in a reasonable style. Since NY is not a community property state, and the house is in your name, maybe you won't have to contribute too much more than paying off the credit card debt for the divorce settlement.


I believe he also said the credit cards are in his name only...therefore, the $100K worth of furniture "he" bought for "his" house, belongs to him too. So he'll be stuck with the credit card debt, but at least he'll have the merchandise still furnishing his house.

The longer the marriage lasts, the more he'll likely have to pay in alimony. Time to cut bait. Let her prove that she can do better, because I'll lay odds that HE can do much better.
