I have a protection order against my husband and he has violated it twice resulting the second time with 11 months 29 days probation. We are in the process of going through the divorce and he has destroyed structures on our property. He has also sold big money items from our marital assets. Our home and property are currently on the market listed for sale. He failed to turn his weapons over to Trousdale County Sheriff's Office but instead turned over receipts where he had sold them supposedly to family and friends. The judge signed the protection order instructing him to turn the weapons over. I would assume this is a contempt of a court order.He and my attorney want to settle out of Court. I don't believe my attorney is representing me fairly and in my best interest but instead is representing my husband on his behalf. I am desperate and I need help I have been married to my husband 25 years and suffered from verbal and controlling abuse please help me. I don't know where else to turn.
You should have a conversation, face to face, with the attorney and try to get the reasons behind the recommendation.
If both parties have joint possession of property and/or assets during the pendency of a divorce, then any person with access to the property or possession of it will have the right to do what they want until the property is severed.
The first step in any divorce is to get your name only on the property that you want if you can. The remainder will be distributed pursuant to a Marital Dissolution Agreement, which, essentially, is a contract between you and your spouse regarding the division of jointly held property.
You should probably contact local divorce counsel to implement these changes.
