I am a 44yr. old woman, I have been disabled since 2008. Was sick some years before being Dx’d with Multiple Sclerosis in 2005. We have been looking at divorce for years. I have made calls to get, with NO luck. The mental abuse and neglect are making me sicker but, with my low income (I only receive $771.00 a month from SS), it’s making it really hard to get a lawyer or to move out.
He is hiding money from me, he wants the house (although he will not fix anything around the home), he has been told by doctors to put ramps into the home/safety guards up in tub/etc. he not only has NOT none that but, my shower is falling in/ there is a big hole in my kitchen flooring that could cause me to fall, the list goes on…
His income is about $50,000 a year, our house payment is only $500.00 a month. There is no “debt” has far as credit cards, etc. My question is, can I have him removed from the home? BUT, I would need some alimony in order to make the bills.
Also, I have called a legal aid service in our area and their advice was that “I should just cut my loses and leave!!” Because, it is making me health worse dealing with all of it and him.
We have been married for 23 yrs. with one 21 yr. old son. I think the advice, I got is outrage! But, how do I get GOOD legal help on my low income when I know he will pay for a good lawyer for his self!! He has wanted out of marriage since I become ill, and he is abusing me with this illness!!
Thanks for site! It is a life saver!!
