A: I am sorry to hear about your situation. There many factors that the Court would need to consider in removing someone from the home. It would be more appropriate to discuss these matters in a less public forum. You certainly should consult with an attorney if you have not already done so.

A: It is unfortunate what you are going through at this time. The first thing you should do is file in Family Court for Spousal support if you haven't done so already and need the support. Unfortunately, the pandemic has made a mess of the court system with cases taking much longer due to staffing problems. You should seek out a consultation with an attorney to go over all of the facts of your case so that he may give you alternatives based upon the specific facts of your case and the circumstances.
