If you want it to go by quickly, DON'T use Susie Baker Cox. Both she and the staff are very sweet and all, but my divorce dragged on forever, with no good reason. We were both cooperative, was a no fault, no contesting divorce. We don't even have kids and it took a year!

I think if I go through with it, I am going to talk to Marty Adkins, I just haven't made up my mind yet. I keep praying that things will change. I just don't understand how they got so messed up, but I am tired of being a doormat, I am tired of turing myself into a pretzel and it doesn't ever change. I am tired of feeling dead inside. Anyway, does anyone know how much a divorce costs, roughly? How long does it take to get a divorce in VA? What do you do if your spouse won't leave and they are abusive to you but you don't have anywhere to go? Do you have to be separated for a certain time before you can file? Is there anywhere online where you can go read up on the law in VA about divorce before you go talk to a lawyer?

I understand how you feel i'm in the same boat as you..I work hard to get to where i'm at today and my husband has had three that i know of and i don't know how many more i don't know about..and he blames me it was my fault because i worked too much but i only live 3 miles for where i work it's not like i was always gone like he was..but now i know it was just an excuse to make him feel better about doing it..i have tried to live with him and try to trust him again but everyso often something happens that make me wonder...i've tried to talk to him about things but he won't talk to me and when i get upset with him he likes to throw things up into my face that he has done for me or my family...a good friend told me that he does that because i havn't done anything wrong and he has gotten caught so he is grasping at anything he can to try and hurt me...but he doesn't realize that the hurt has been done and there is no going back...I want to be happy and i'm not with him because i'm going to always wonder when the next time will happen...

@Heartbroken, I will pray for you, I hope you will pray for me. I have forgiven my husband. I feel sorry for all of the things that he has done and continues to do. No one knows what it is like here, I have always put on the smiley face and hid it well, but I am tired of pretending. People have no idea what it is like, everyone thinks that we have this perfect, devoted life and that he is a caring husband, but it is a lie. People have no idea how he does not care and how he has his flashes of anger and rage. I pray that God will help him see what he has done and he will repent. I just feel now that he is going to probably leave, that he is planning it again and I have felt led that I should not beg him to come back or stay this time when he leaves. He has left often over the years, but I have always asked him to come back and taken him back. I am just tired of it and I realize now I would rather be alone than continue to feel this way. But I keep getting scripture that I need to wait on the Lord, that he is giving him some time to come around, but that if he doesn't I need to be getting my house in order, be working to not be dependent on him and to trust God if he leaves again. I have stayed for the sake of my children, but they are almost grown. I don't care if I have to go dig roots out of the ground to survive since they are almost grown, I just don't want to feel this way anymore. It wuold be better to be alone, starving, than to continue to put on this smiley face and pretend that things are wonderful when they are not. I am tired of putting it all in the box.

God bless both curious and heartbroken,. I will pray for you, as I, too went thru this situation with an ex-husband. He tried to control my every move, had his finger on every penny I spent,(I have my own money) but always spent his paycheck on what he wanted with absolutely no regard to his family. Bought a used Harley for his 5oth birthday, and then went wild with over 2000.00 in leather and accessories for it. Then, when it got cold so he couldn't ride it, he tried to take my car and leave me with no way to Dr appts, grocery shopping-- etc.
He would stand in my face and scream at me when I went to yard sales to buy things for the home, as he never fixed anything in or bought anything for the house. Only spent money on his own expensive habits... I actually went without plumbing for over 5 months once due to his depending on me to keep the house up, when I do not know how to plumb pipes, and couldn't afford to have them fixed. He ran all my friends off with his creepy ways of either trying to get with them behind my back, or bad mouthing them when they were around me until one by one, they all faded away.
Oh, yeah, he also drank over a case of beer a night, or went thru a bottle of liquor every 2-3 days. He was a pretty good functioning alcoholic, but finally lost his job as a truckdriver due to his health deteriorating due to the alcohol abuse.
I stayed with him until my daughter stopped crying after him and telling me I was mean to poor daddy when he would try to convince her all his problems were my fault, or someone else's fault, or he just was drunk off his butt. After I left him, stopped enabling him, and no longer was his personal slave, he tried to get me to come back repeatedly, stalking me and such. I finally moved to another state, and he then remarried a woman that didn't take near as much as I did... she put him in a wheelchair, then he went into a resthome when he could no longer function on his own. She shot him and paralized him, and messed up his kidneys when she caught him with another woman in her bed. Now, he has been trying to contact our daughter and coerce her into either taking care of poor ole daddy, or sending him money constantly. He found out that she has a good job, so he feels she OWES him..... She knows what kind of man he really is, and has no desire to have anything to do with him. But she struggles with herself, as he can sure try to manipulate with guilt.... He still blames everything on others and has no regard for even the rest home people who are trying to take care of him, I was told by his brother.
So, ladies, I will pray for you, but you must face the same fact I had to.... Selfish, narscisstic people do not change, and as long as you take the abuse or enable them to abuse you, you will be the one to suffer. There just seems to be no changing their mindset, and they will never have love for you, their children, or anyone or anything...
They will never have respect or any decency for you, only a sense of entitlement and greed for what they can get from you, financially, emotionally, or physically... That's just my opinion, and I hope I haven't offended anyone with my story here.

Oh, try legal aid, or most lawyers will give you an hour free consultation that you can get advice from. Also, call the cops if he is physically abusive, and have a restraining order put against him, if you can prove the abuse and he will have to leave your home.
Also, try to get on HUD's housing list if you can, and he refuses to leave you. You also may want to try a shelter for abused women.... good luck to you, and God bless...

@McKinsey you did not offend me or anyone with your story. i am sorry you have suffered so much at his hands, compared to your story, mine is not that bad, he does not hit me often and it is really not that bad when he does, and he does not have a substance abuse problem, he just stays at work, cheats, ignores me and our children and runs us down, lets the house fall apart, and about once a year freaks out in a rage and leaves and then comes back always says he is sorry and that he will go into counseling and comes back but then he never goes to get help and later ends up saying i drive him to do the things that he does or that he can't help that he is a diabetic and that his sugar runs out of control and makes him this way. I am just tired of taking him back, but I am financially dependent on him. i did not want our children to suffer financially, so i put up with it, but they are about grown and i don't care if i have to go hungry it is better than living like this and it would do no good to go to the police since he has so many friends that are police and so many people are deluded by him thinking he is an upstanding, upright man and his family has money and connections...he has everyone convinced that i am the one that is crazy and that he has been a saint putting up with me all these years. when my last child leaves home i just want to walk out of here with the clothes on my back and not look back, he can have what is there i just don't care i just don't want to feel this way anymore.

How many times have you been cheated on how much hurt can you take you have no room to come on here and tell anyone to stick with their cheating partner cause you have no idea what kind of situation they have been through or still going through I think if you felt the pain that people go through when they get cheated on then you will know but til then you have nothing to say to anyone.
True, but if you can agree on how to split, who gets what and not try to "go on the attack" when he is obviously a slug isn't worth enriching lawyers. You can get a divorce or write a simple will or many things without one of these creeps getting thousands from your misery. Agree to something, write iot down, and have it witnessed and signed. Call the clerk and ask "How do I..." and do it on the cheap!

Does anyone know anything about Huck Hunnicut?
Was married to a nut

United States

#37 Jul 5, 2011
And he's still a nut and I don't think he will EVER change. He was physically abusive to me for years, a liar and a cheater for many years. I didn't know he was a cheater until I "caught" him. I was absolutely so hurt that I couldn't function daily life. I knew he had faults (as we all do.....but never a cheater) He has been diagnosed as bi-polar, OCD and several other mental disorders. He wouldn't take his meds....took his sex drive away...what a joke...so no meds for him. When I think I gave that nut almost 40 years of my life, I get physically sick enough to vomit. He stays in trouble with the law and is in court often. I felt sorry for him for so many years but now after several years of counseling I know that I can "never" change him because he wants to be a high sex driven nut instead of an upstanding man. He has stooped to selling drugs and grows pot to use himself and sell to young people. My standard of life is not what it was when I was married to him (I worked all our married life) so I try to live my life "walking with faith" that karma will be in the hand of God.

Divorce attorneys? Greg Stewart, Susie Baker are both good. Jeff Sturgill may be the best particularly considering the divorces he's handled (like for judges, other attorneys, etc.). Brent is solid. Greg Kallen is really good and he has another attorney in his office, Julie something, they work together so you have an easier time getting stuff done. Jeremy O'Quinn and Chuck Slemp are fine attorneys as well. If you end up with an uncontested divorce (as most of them end up being if only because of the expense of a truly contested divorce).
Don't expect infidelity to help much... you aren't going to 'take him to the cleaners' because he cheated on you in this day and age. You'd be smarter to hold your tongue and take sometime to carefully plan and prepare.
Even in cases of divorce for grounds (abandonment, abuse, infidelity, etc.) judges often require that the parties be separated for 6 months (no minor children) or one year (if there are minor children) before they will finalize the divorce. In some cases this can be helpful and let you get some support in the meantime....but there has to be some money or assets for that support to come from.
