I was in a depressive state from family matters . wife threw me out without a dime to name. Moving boyfriend (&our employee) in the day I left. I found out later. Hit me with restraining orders to hide affair and keep me away from our co owned Restaurant. Which she included in orders. I'm not allowed there. My own restaurant. And she has not shared any of the profits and has left me with No home and confused. Together 24 yrs. And married for 15 yrs 5 months. How can I get my share so I can get a place to live. Both names are on title of Restaurant. Dont own the land its on but do own all equipment inside of it.
File a request for spousal support pendente lite. I'm not clear how she got those orders, but I seems clear you need assistance. Ask for attorney's fees.

Did either party file a divorce petition? That would be the first step and then you still own the restaurant and have a right to its share of the profits. So, you need legal assistance to get them and to get a financial report. Also, you will need to have the business evaluated by an accounting to determine if there is any CP value in the business. The CP value started only when you got married, not when you came together. Strongly advise you seek legal assistance. The restaurant my have enough revenue to pay for attorney fees.
