my wife has recently changed the locks to our home. she wants a divorce. i did not want to stir up any trouble so i'm staying with inlaws temporarely. every time i inquire about the soaring increase of bills to our home she simply responds by saying i'm harrasing her and will call police on me. the va home loan was secured as a result of my military service but now i am homeless.
This presents a tough problem as it does not look likely that either of you have sufficient funds to hire attorneys. Be that as it may, you should at least consult with an attorney. You have the same rights to be in the house until and if a judge tells you to move out. You need to consult an attorney and, if there is any way possible, file for divorce so that some of these issues can be sorted out.
I agree with the previous attorney's answer. Until a court order is issued giving one of you possession of the home, you both have a right to be there. If she calls the police on you, they will tell her the same thing. You need to file a case in family court to resolve issues of separation, custody, visitation and support. You may be financially eligible for a lawyer through the S.C. Bar's Pro Bono program. They can be reached at 1-800-395-3425.
