I think he only married me to get his visa he lied and acted that he is in love with me and lied to the immigration officers what can I do
He actually changed the will about a month ago. My mother insisted on separate trust because she does not trust him to do the right thing. Could you please tell me how he legally did this. Thank you for your help in this matter.

If someone does not have capacity to make a will, they cannot make a will. No one else can do it for them at that point.

You can contact a legal aid group through the Michigan State Bar. Attorneys Amy also work on a flat fee basis depending on the facts surrounding the divorce. Ignoring a complaint is always a bad idea.

You can file a motion to have him leave house. Also consider a personal protection order which can be filed and approved without his knowledge, to keep him out of the house, and be effective when a police officer serves it on him.

At some point, after you have diligently tried to serve him and he has refused, you should be able to get a default judgement. Especially if no kids are involved.
I asked for a separation last Saturday night and was asked to leave where I was living. I tried to take my daughter with me but my husband and his family denied me to take her.

You start by filing a complaint and serving him. At that point you can begin negotiating child custody, property settlement, etc. If he files first, you would be the defendant but that likely won’t change the outcome related to child custody at all.

The money that was in my account was to file bankruptcy, all the courthouses are closed to the public due to the Coronavirus. Everything I had was in my account, now I have no money for rent, food, my car. Is there any way to fight this during a national emergency?
