I am truely sorry to hear of your situation. A separation is never an easy thing to go through but it’s more difficult in hard times. I wish you the best.

Dear chellfish:

Greetings. You can file a claim for post separation support and alimony, which I would do, and you should also pursue your rights to Social Security Disability with an attorney that practices that type of law. You may not need to give her any equity in the home, depending on the other assets in the marriage. Blessings and hope to you in your illness.

what is the difference between Alimony and post separation support? and if she goes and moves out could there be grounds for abandoment? she had stated in our vows for better or worse but now that thing are not so good for me she is leaving. She also told me she was going to have to leave some of her thing at our home because her new place will not hold it, do I have to hold this things till the house is settled? can I change the locks once she has moved?? I guess I have alot of question, just never been down this road before.

Dear chellfish:

Greetings. Alimony is permanent support while post separation support is temporary support in court until Alimony can be paid. Yes, abandonment is when one of the spouses leaves the marital residence. Yes, you must hold onto the belongings until you have a separation agreement. Yes, you can change the locks. I suggest that you speak with an attorney. Thank you.
