Can someone tell me if they think I'll have to pay alimony? I make about $85k. My wife makes about $75k. I sometimes think my lawyer is working for my wife. My lawyer told me that alimony is based on who paid for what when the couple was married. In my case, I paid 100% for everything out of a combination of savings, my pay and having some debt. My wife's paycheck would go into savings, her 401k & her IRA. If I'm following my lawyer's logic, I'm going to have to pay alimony even though our salaries are about the same and all the kids are grown. That doesn't make sense. But since I paid for everything while we were married, my lawyer is saying I should expect to pay alimony? Is my lawyer correct? Or do i need a new lawyer? Thanks.
