I am 54. I am 5 months into the Divorce. We had mediation about a month ago, but she walked out because I was asking for too much. She has a load of Separate Property, and there is not much to the Community Property.
The wife has about 3 Mil in inheritance. During 25 years of marriage, she assured me that it was "ours," even though it was in her name. Well when she handed me Divorce papers, it immediately became hers. So I'm screwed in that regard.
I still have access to her Google Calendar, and tonight I found two calendar events: 1) Feb 24, Dinner with Bob, 2) March 22 - 25, Port A Get Away with Bob.
I have just forwarded the information to my Attorney, and I have submitted a request to a Private Investigator to call me tomorrow.
Being 5 months into this, I am really just numb. I've lost my wife, and marriage. This is messing with my kids (19 & 21), and my retirement is going to be blasted back to the stone age.
Will her infidelity have any weight in the court room in my favor?
Will it give me an advantage when the Judge decides the split of Community Property?
... and of course, any other advice on how to get through this would be greatly appreciated.
