My husband must leave our home. He isn't physically abusive but psychologically he is to me directly. Our kids mental state is not being helped by his behavior.
My lawyers continue to tell me I'm strong. Why don't they want to help me get him out?
Your Attorney can file a motion to try to get him to move. This does not assure success but it might be a start. You can always move as well.
You might have an issue with placement of the children, however. Having no knowledge about what that status is prevents someone from giving you your choices.
Talk to your attorney and ask specifically what needs to be done to get him to move out.
If you file for divorce, you can file a motion for temporary custody of the children and for exclusive occupancy of the house during the divorce process which would get him out. Talk to your attorney about doing that.
