Theodore W. Robinson, P.C. | Theodore W. Robinson
Hire the best matrimonial attorney you can find and sue him for divorce and include a demand for whatever you want from him. Most spouses don't want to pay, but eventually, they realize it's a losing battle fighting over what you want - because the attorneys will eat it all up on you by the time you're through. Better to settle now and avoid the difficulties and still have something between you to split. Good luck.
