– from Beverly X. in Greenfield, WI
My husband of 10 years and I are beginning the initial stages of divorce. We have two children. I have worked for the past 10 years doing what I love, but I do not make a lot of money doing it. My husband makes a substantial amount per year. We have agreed that I should get custody of the children – and that is all we agree on. I have explained that I should receive maintenance and child support in addition to a 50/50 award of property division. He does not agree, and says that I should receive less than 50% in the property award. Could this happen?
