    In other countries, the wife's brothers and male cousins would sort this out. Does she have people here who could have a word with the husband? There are always work-arounds, even when religion sticks it's oily, obstructive nose in the middle of things. Gypsies and Samoans know to fix these sorts of problems.

    Better stated: what is 'conservative Christian' and what relevance does that to selection of a divorce lawyer.

    Forget the conservative Christian lawyer, what she needs is a ruthless bastard lawyer. She should file an assault case with the police. Oh and forget amicable. Are there any children involved?

    PS we are obviously only getting one side of the story here.

    If Im not mistaken the rule here by law is after 7 years of marriage each is automatically entitled to half the assets no matter who brought it in. This is what I recall was told to us when we got married.
    But Im sure we have some lawyers on this forum.

    Why does she want to be amicable then? I wouldn't be after all that.

    I know of one case where the apartment value was judged / influenced by who paid mortgage/expenses/bills, they got a slightly more than 50% in the settlement.

    Would she not be better off by throwing him out and NOT divorcing him? Just stop supporting him. Sounds like the divorce gives him rights... without divorce the person holding the purse strings has the power. Move house, sell the old one with a sitting tenant, don't give hubby new address, change any access to the bank account... forget amicable. I have no problem with house husbands, but abusive house husbands, no way.
