Mesa, AZ asked in Family Law for Arizona

Q: My mom has dementia for the past year. Her husband cheated over a decade ago and is. Is trying to kick her out. She pay

My mom has dementia. She has had it for the past year. Her husband cheated over a decade ago and has been living with his mistress. Now suddenly he wants to kick my mom out even though she’s been paying the mortgage this whole time. They have never divorced but he is the only one on the mortgage. He knows that we are trying to place her in a facility but now he’s giving me two weeks for her to get out. Adultery is a crime in Michigan, can I use that? Can he legally kick her out even though she’s been paying the bills and she has dementia? They live in Michigan

A: This is really a question for an attorney who handles adult guardianships or elder law. It probably needs to be answered by an attorney in Michigan.

If the property is in Michigan, and if both spouses are in MIchigan, then you'll need to speak to a Michigan-licensed attorney about this. As I am only licensed in Arizona, I can't even advise you on this.
