Dear mjordan:

Greetings. There are a couple of ways for you to “help” her leave the home. First, I would talk to her family about taking her. That may mean paying for airfare to NY, arranging the trip for her, etc. Next, cut off her availability to funds. Close any joint accounts, credit cards, etc. If she does not have any money, she cannot buy her alcohol. Third, see if she is willing to go to a treatment facility for alcoholism.

Legally, you can file a claim for divorce from bed and board and ask the court to have her removed. Based on the information you have provided, it does not appear to me that you have a claim for domestic violence (your fear seems to be for what she will do to the house or herself).

Finally, if she is suicidal, you may want to speak to someone at Holly Hill or your local public mental health agency for assistance. Thank you and good luck.

HI, We just moved to North Carolina from NY. We were married in NY in 2002.My wife has a drinking problem and refuses to get help or admit she has a problem.I have come to realize that she will not stop drinking.When the credit check was done to get the mortgage I found out that she has a $10,000.00 charge off for a credit card bill she never paid that she ran up before we were married-she never told me about this!
What do I have to do to get her out of the house?
She is drunk on a daily basis and I do not feel safe leaving her alone while I work-she is unemployed and not looking too hard for a job. I want to know how I get her out of the house-HELP!![?]
