my father in law recently made it known that he's thinking of walking out of his marrage after 48 years. the issue is with my mother in law who has never worked a day in her life, my father in law is retired and has allot of assets and investments. thing is no one knows how much or where they are since he has had total financial control over their money there whole life. My mother doesnt know what to do at this point, because my father in law may toss her out like the trash and she is not mentally equiped to handle this. Its my belief that my mother in law has been mentally abused her whole life my my father in law. To meet him one would understand why i think this. Nothing has been filed, but the statement was made by my father in law to my wife (his daughter) that "once my melanoma on my ear is taken care of i'm going to leave your mother cause i am sick of her." Thsi has everyone worried as to what to do and how my mother in law could prepare to protect herself in case he does do something like this. She has no assets of money in her name that we know of, she did but he took it all and did something with it recently. she is 67 and he is 72 years of age. what should she do to repare herslef in this case.
