Anonymous Asked:

My husband has decided he wants to leave me. We have a toddler and I am a stay at home mom (he makes around 90k and I've been home for 3.5 yrs). He wants to sell the house and move on ASAP but I have zero income or savings and there is a 50k debt that accumulated within our marriage. I can't afford a new place nor do I want to move again, and can't even afford this debt! We also signed a marriage contract so there's nothing to help me financially there. I've heard of alimony but don't think that will help even make a dent in the bills and I have no idea who or where to go for advice that doesn't cost an arm and a leg. I'm so lost 🙁
