Mr. and Mrs. Wicker have been married for 15 years and have two children together, a 12-year-old son and a 10-year-old daughter. Recently, Mr. Wicker has been having an affair, and both he and Mrs. Wicker have decided to get a divorce. They are currently in the process of dividing their assets and determining custody arrangements for their children.
The Wickers have a joint bank account with $150,000, a mortgage on their house for $300,000, and Mr. Wicker has a retirement account worth $200,000. They have agreed to divide their assets equally so that Mrs. Wicker will receive $125,000 from the joint bank account, $150,000 from the sale of their house, and $100,000 from Mr. Wicker’s retirement account.
Mr. and Mrs. Wicker have been unable to agree on custody arrangements for their children. They are currently working with a mediator to find a solution that is in the children’s best interest. After several mediation sessions, they agreed on joint custody, where the children will spend equal time with both parents, with a primary residence with the mother and holidays and weekends with the father.
Mr. Wicker will pay $1,500 per month in child support to Mrs. Wicker to help cover the expenses of raising their children.
Mrs. Wicker has been a stay-at-home mother for the entire 15 years of the marriage and has not been employed outside the home. Mr. Wicker agrees to pay her $2,500 per month in alimony for the next three years to help her transition into the workforce and become financially independent.
