My wife decided she wanted to separate and work towards a divorce. We have two young children. Since she works from home, she will have main custody of the children. I'm about to start my my second year of medical school. I live completely off of student loans in Arizona. We are going to try mediation. Can anyone put a number to fair child support or spousal maintenance I should offer as a student? I love my children and will support them best I can but I will end school with massive amounts of debt, what negotiations should I be aware of so I don't get screwed financially in the future? I'm also open to general (constructive) advice from those who went through similar situations. How did you work things out?
