My husband bought me a large piece of property and a nice double wide trailer in another state and moved me into it with the promise of following me down. He said he wanted to wait to see if he was deploying right away because he wanted to go with his guys(understandable). After a few months, I recieved a text message from him telling me he wanted a separation. He said this way I would still be entitled to Tricare.Hurt and confused, I refused to give him a separation, telling him to wait until he returns from active duty. Then just weeks prior to his deployment he shuts off all my utilities, turns off my cell phone, clears out our bank accounts and closes them leaving me with no income and no money. Then I find out he had abandoned My other house several weeks prior. Abandoning all ties.
I think that your situation is important and difficult; an answer here would be totally unreliable. Go talk to an attorney; any fees you pay will be totally worth it, in my opinion.
Thanks for reading my response to this question. If your found this answer "Helpful" or "The Best Answer" PLEASE MARK IT, because Avvo awards me points. Thanks! Note that the questioner and any reader do not have an attorney-client relationship formed by our communications on this website. Advice given by me on this website is general advice based on partial information. You should not rely on any advice given without first hiring a lawyer in the area where the case is pending, and providing that lawyer with full information.
Your rights and remedies depend on many things including the length of the marriage, his assets, etc. You would be very well-served to talk to a local attorney and go over the details and decide promptly on what is worth pursuing.
If you find this answer helpful, please mark it here on AVVO as helpful. In answering you, I am attempting to communicate general legal information and am not representing you. Do feel free to call me at 404-768-3509 if you wish to discuss actual representation (the phone call also does not retain counsel; that requires an office visit and appropriate paperwork). In that a forum such as this provides me with limited details and doesn't allow me to review details and documents, it is possible that answers here, while meant to be helpful, may in some cases not be complete or accurate, and I highly recommend that you retain legal counsel rather than rely on the answers here. (You can also email my office at [email protected] . An email also does not retain my office, but can help you get an appointment set if you prefer not to call). Any information in this communication is for discussion purposes only, and is not offered as legal advice. There is no right to rely on the information contained in this communication and no attorney-client relationship is formed. Nothing in my answer should be considered as tax-advice. To ensure compliance with IRS Circular 230, any U.S. federal tax advice provided in this communication is not intended or written to be used, and it cannot be used by the recipient or any other taxpayer (i) for the purpose of avoiding tax penalties that may be imposed on the recipient or any other taxpayer, or (ii) in promoting, marketing or recommending to another party a partnership or other entity, investment plan, arrangement or other transaction addressed herein. I am also required to advise you, if your question concerns bankruptcy, that the U.S. Congress has designated Ashman Law Office as a debt relief agency that can help people file bankruptcy.
Your rights are going to be based on much more information than you have provided, or would be able to provide, in this forum. For you to find an answer to your question, you will need to contact a local Family Law attorney (one local to wherever your divorce complaint would be filed).
