Married 6 months and I want out.

Sharon (Guest) on Wednesday, February 13 2013, 11:59 AM
We have been married for just over 6 months now and it was a mistake. I'd like to get a divorce. We got married because I am pregnant with his child. We rent an apartment in Lowell. He has some money in savings, I do not. I would like to know what I will be entitled to, if anything, when we divorce?

    Once the child is born, you will be entitled to child support assuming he earns more than you and you are the primary custodial parent of the child. With respect to asset division, this is a short term marriage, so it is likely that the Court would look to put the parties in the financial situation they were in before the marriage (in other words you each keep what you have). That being said, if you need to move and he has more in assets and earnings, it is possible you could receive some money to assist with your move.
