With Mississippi not being a community property state how do they figure the equitable distribution? Is it in favor of who contributed more (I) or who contributed less (her)? We are completely amicable and aren't to that point yet but have discussed if we get there we split assets & custody 50/50 and she doesn't want child support. However I don't think the good state of Mississippi is going to sign off on that. Anybody had a similar situation?

What does a Mississippi divorce and a tornado have in common?

When I divorced in MS it was basically 50/50 even though he hadn’t contributed much.

Our county also required it be put in the decree that we had to split the cost of a state university for each kid if they chose to go to college.

Something in the water lately. I've got several friends in the same boat. We're all clueless.

there are 3 stages to most relationships.

1,the beginning where everything is great
2.the middle where it gets boring
3. the end, and she's always angry

Close it before she gets an attorney because once she does it's over. I can assure you, her friends are telling her to get one.

If both parties agree to everything in the decree and sign it, the judge will agree. If you're amicable and split 50-50 everything, you're good.

Now that's not saying she won't take you back to court for more if she so pleases.

You are right, almost no judge is going to sign off on the child support proposal. They’ll almost always use a per child formula, unless she makes a lot more than you.. Good luck getting 50/50 custody. It is certainly possible, but unusual. If you split before divorce, try to do 50/50 immediately and it will help your chances. They like to keep circumstances the same if it has worked. If your work schedule is much more demanding (travel, longer hours, etc.) it is going to be an uphill battle.

The 50/50 property split is not an uphill battle. Agree to everything before you go to court, if possible, or at least as much as you can. Try to keep it civil, this becomes more and more difficult as the proceedings go on. In most instances, a judge is going to do what a rational person would have done before she/he got involved. You pay a lot to lawyers, slows up the process and then put things in the hands of a judge that may not give as much to either side as they could have gotten by agreement.

I have nothing to add other than I think that would be a great name for an album.

This sounds insane. The govt dictated that you’d split the cost (paid to the govt) of something to an independent adult?

Just a heads up. Child support ends at 21 in Mississippi. That sucks fricking donkey dick. And yea she's going to want and get that child support. Just wait.
