Abandonement card


#1

Abandonment is when one person terminates the cohabitation against the other’s will. Visiting relatives may or may not be abandonment, depending on her intent to return. Did she say she was just visiting? Has she taken all of her belongings? Also, you would have to show that her leaving was not mutually agreeable. Abandonment could play in to whether or not you have to pay her any alimony.
