Q: I have been in this marriage for 23 years wanting to work things out. Things have gotten worse in few years. Last year had a massive heart attack and things have gotten worse than better. I want to leave the marriage but separate rather than divorce. I want him to pay for kids only because I know he is money controlling individual.
A: David's Answer: You can file a petition for spousal support and child support in Family Court. You can also retain an attorney to work out a separation agreement with your spouse. Call a Putnum/Westchester Divorce attorney to schedule a consult. - David Bliven, Westchester Divorce Attorney.
