Spring, TX |

My wife & I live together but have no relation since years . She has two boyfriends but refuses to leave because she whats our house for her self. What worries me is if we do get divorced that I'll lose my house & she'll take advantage & become irresponsible with our two younger ones. I pay her child support even though we never seen a judge for that. I pay all my utilities & take care of my children. She is abusive towards me throws things, hits me,ect. She tried to hit my daughter last weekend, I got in between so I got hit with a shoe. I found out she has life insurance on me but I don't understand why if we don't even talk . Need help is a stressful situation , what forms exactly do I need to get this divorce on it's way.
