Jefferson, NY |

house I own. Just food. I bought that house with lawsuit money, that I earned by getting hit by a tow truck.My mom's name is on the house also, as a cosigner. we have been married 2 and 1/2 yrs.I told her, I don't love her, I asked her to leave so many times, she drinks 3-4 a week, I was wondering if I get papers served to her to get out of the house, will that work for me?? I told her I want a divorce several times, she just don't leave..I want to serve her divorce papers, and get her out, Please what else can I do,? I want her out.I am documenting all her drinking episodes.fights etc.I hired a lawyer to make up the papers for me, Is this going to work,?Is there anything else, I can do to make sure she gets out?

I didn't hire a lawyer ... I spoke to a lawyer,and they said, they will make up papers for me, but do you think these papers will do the trick to get her out?

You said in the last sentence that you hired a lawyer to make up the papers for you. So, your lawyer should answer all these questions. If you don't trust your lawyer to answer these questions, you may want to hire another more experienced lawyer who you can trust to answer all your questions about your divorce (those in your question and those that may come up in the future.

Also licensed in New York and practicing in NYC and Long Island.

You are on the right track. However, nothing is guaranteed. However, if you file for divorce (no fault) and seek sole possession of the house, you should obtain it, especially if you bought the house before the marriage. Although you own the house, she has some tenancy rights that can only be extinguished by the court. Interview several experienced family law attorneys in your area and select the one who fits your needs, budget, and time frame.

Go to your lawyer and find out. Don't have us second guess your lawyer.

Good luck.
