That's what I am referring to - a woman can have all her post-divorce expenses paid, something most men will not enjoy post divorce.IF she has one and moves in with him or vice versa than that's a different story.
I am finalizing my divorce without mediation and obviously without a court so I am a bit further along in the process. My STBX didn't work, moved out, now has a job but not enough to support herself and my S8 50% of the time. So pretty similar.
It sounds like you two are keeping a level head so far. Depending on what state you live in (I live in TX) spousal support is 100% tax deductible as long as it's 3 or more years and you can lump some the amount if you want vs. monthly. You may want to pay her more in SS to obtain other things. My wife wants the cash so I am giving her 60/40 in equity in home for way less in my retirment.
You need to see if your STBX is willing to list out her soon to be expenses for living on her own. That will give you an idea on what you may have to pay at the beginning until she gets a job. SS (in tx) is defined as financial support for essential expenses to help get STBX on his/her feet. Doesn't mean you pay for the brand new home.
First, it's good that she is willing to move out. Like everyone says on here...DO NOT MOVE OUT. Secondly, I would do what it took to stay in the house together until she finds a job. That's less you will have to pay out of your pocket in the long run. Just look at it as a roommate situation and just do everything and say everything with the mindset of what is best for your daughter.
I hope this helps. Unless I am misssing something, I wouldn't worry about what Bart says regarding a boyfriend. That's something you have no control over. IF she has one and moves in with him or vice versa than that's a different story.
I hope this helps some. Good luck. It sucks but will get better.
