What does the lease say about damages or venue? Your question is also confusing - did she lease property in Tennessee and move to Maine, or the other way?

Seems like he should refund your deposit. But also, you may be on the hook for August since you lived there, at least the majority of the month. What does your lease say about it? If he fails to return the deposit, consider filing a civil summons in general sessions court.
He would file a complaint for custody and child support with the circuit court in the county where he resides. There are forms available online from the State of Tennessee - but it would be wise to consult with local counsel to determine his best course of action. These cases can be complicated.
If you lose on the 23rd you would have 10 days to vacate or the landlord can file a writ of possession and have the sheriff remove you. Or you could appeal within 10 days should you lose.

Maybe. An attorney would need to review the contract. 50 or so miles has been deemed reasonable by courts, as well as 1 year for a time limitation. There are other factors, but the best way to get a solid answer is to have an attorney review your documents.
