Hi. Wife wants a divorce. We have not been on the same page for a while. We have 4 kids. She lounges around the house all day with everything paid for her, zero contribution. She doesn't work, even though she's 30 and can. She keeps threatening to take the kids whether she has a place or not. She involves her parents too and it causes extra pressure. I work from home, have a nice house, kids are in good schools and we have a comfortable life. What are my rights. Is it okay to threaten me with this nonsense which is apparently from her "lawyer"
