$500 per kid, plus the $250????????? That's $1250 a month!

If I was facing that, I'd need 4 Tylenol PM's just to get to sleep every night!

Horrors of horrors!

And then what happens if we collide with another economic recession, you're out of work, then what?

If that happens I will move to a studio. My bills are 2800 a month. My bills in a studio would be 1,000 tops.
I'd end up saving 600 a month. lol

Then he goes back and requests the court readjust child support. It's not a fixed-in-stone amount. It's 18% of each parents' income for 1 child, 25% for two, and a little more for each additional child. If you are intentionally unemployed/underemployed, the court won't look kindly on that and will impute an amount the court believes you are capable of earning.

Fortunately, he's not in that scenario.

There's millions of couples, worldwide, who've stopped loving each other, and they've comfortably settled into a roommate situation, sleeping in separate bed/rooms, and if you can tolerate it, even finding a place to sleep in your garage, I'd stay with your wife and kids, unless she insists otherwise.

How old are the kids?

We've pretty much been doing that for the last 2 years. She can't make it on her own and she knows it. She damn sure can't make it with the kids. We will definitely get divorced as soon as she gets some life skills.

Kids are 8 and 13.

A former co-worker told me it's the roughest thing he ever experienced. This was many years ago, so I don't remember the exact term he used.

Not to be confrontational but if she has been a SAHM how will she suddenly get "life skills"? I had to terminate someone who said that our business had to understand that single parents will miss work unexpectedly due to parental obligations. This person continually had a single parent issue. She lost her unemployment claim. Your wife would likely have the same mindset after being a SAHM for so long imo.

Is inheritance split as well during divorce? How about 401K and other after tax investments?

In general, separate property (like an inheritance) remains separate property, and doesn't get divided in a divorce. Of course, of the inheritance has been commingled with marital assets (like, say, a joint checking account), it becomes more likely to be deemed a community asset.
