Can my husband be responsible for paying for my divorce attorney's fees since I have been a stay-at-home mom?
I am not employed and I have been a stay at home wife and mother in Jackson County, MO for 11 years. Should I wait to file for a divorce until I am employed? If he decides to file first, can he be held responsible for paying for both our legal fees since I am not employed? I have kept good notes of his hostile and threatening behavior towards me. I have left twice for a few months but came back because I am scared to go through with a divorce having never been on my own and I don't want my son to go back and forth between us. But I am fully convinced that staying with him out of fear is not good either.
