2 yrs ago, spouse filed separation papers to avoid my debts. I failed to respond, told filing was just for peace of mind. 1 yr ago, spouse, filed request to enter default on legal separation but never got judgment. I'm told it'll take 2 months to get it set aside. The filing is false: says separated after 7 yrs of marriage when in fact we were married and together w/children for 12 yrs; says 1st house (title & loan - in spouse name only-due to credit) was a gift & separate property, in fact, I pd down payment & contributed every mo. to mortgage for 12 years; & it denies spousal support. In 2 days, spouse is turning in title & kicking me & our 2 minor kids out of 2nd home, that we've lived in & paid on for 5yrs (Title & Ln, also in spouses name) How can I stop it? Little money for attorney.
