    Loans During Marriage/Adoption

    A loan was given by my mother-in-law to my wife and I to pay for the adoption of our son. There is nothing in writing and now we are getting a divorce, her choice. Am I to be expected to continue to pay half of this loan on top of the ridiculous amount of child support being asked? Her and I make nearly the exact amount of money each month due to being in the same profession.

    The other concern is she had been considering the divorce when we adopted and ever since. Now, she's taking custody of our son and I'm paying her for him when she saw this path when we adopted.

    This is an issue you should resolve in your divorce proceedings. You may have a legitimate argument for fraud based on her intentions to get a divorce when you made the loan. Additionally, you should try to obtain joint shared custody of the child.
