Assuming you (and it would be your responsibility, or your lawyer's) properly served him with all the necessary paperwork (summons, complaint, and various other required forms if children are involved), than the only stuff his lawyer would receive is what he gave him or her. It would be on the...Read more »

I am currently unemployed and he pays all the bills. He recently put his hands on me on my bday 7/24 and put me out of his house. I came home to my clothes, purses and furniture put out in my vehicles and the garage. So I'm afraid for my safety that this will not turn out well once he is... Read more »
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.
I had an affair that ultimately resulted in me filing for divorce. My husband agreed that was what he wanted. He moved out as soon as the papers were filed. I live in MY house with our three kids. My oldest is almost 13 and when we were all together before he moved out, we both agreed she was... Read more »
She filed for custody and I sent back the questionnaire but divorce papers still have not been filed yet. I am in Oak Park Michigan. I have been married for 16 years and there are four minor children. My son lives with me. What is my next legal step? I already tried to get the case dismissed and... Read more »
The case will not be dismissed if she is actively pursuing it. Under what grounds would the court have authority to dismiss it? You could file for divorce since she apparently hasn't yet. That should be your next step.
I cant afford our home bills on my own. He gave me 3 options: I buy the home from him, he stays at the home, or we sell and split any profit. I chose the later. I am now trying to move everything, figure out what is mine/his. Friends say i should file for legal separation, not sure if this is the... Read more »
Legal separation will do everything a divorce does except make you legally divorced. You could do so to help bring some certainty to the economic situation. However, your husband could counter file for divorce. Michigan is a "no fault" state when it comes to divorce, and it only takes one...Read more »
separated in December 2018. He moved to Georgia and left all of his belongings and never came back to get his belongings. Now he won't sign the divorce papers. I was told in September 2019 by the sheriff and the county clerk that his belongings were considered abandoned.
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. She is 12 yrs old and she wanted to stay with her dad and grandparents. I just want it known that I didnt abandoned her.... Read more »
The court will look at the best interests of the child factors to determine child custody. The fact that your spouse’s family denied your request to take your daughter does not control here. Hire an attorney and file for divorce. Unless there are strong factors weighing against 50/50 custody,...Read more »
My ex moved out in November of 2017. We separated because he stayed using meth and hit me. He was just in jail because of a warrant. Had 3 charges. One for shoplifting. One for child support on his first child that he doesn't pay. And one for drug charges.
He has yet to do so and convinced me last yr that I need to sign a quick claims deed because he was on his way to the bank that same day to refinance. Well months later I had our son ask him if he did it...it was still showing up on my credit report. He told my son no he couldn't do it.
I was 13 he was 21. Been with him 25 yrs. Have 4 kids...He treats me horrible and i want out. But he took EVERYTHING!!!! LEFT ME ON STREET. Also CHEATING on me w Facebook girls..have PROOF. & HE is a major alcoholic.
When were you married? Michigan is generally a "no fault" state when it comes to divorce and so for purposes of divorce, cheating doesn't really matter. Spousal support is possible, particularly in long term marriages (generally over 10 years), and when there is some fault attributed...Read more »
I'm a 23 year old female and he is a 26 year old male. This is both of our first marriage. We got married 12/07/2018. He keeps telling his friends and family one story as to why we are divorcing and tells me another story as to what he has told them. He has been active in smearing my name,... Read more »
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. Michigan is a no-fault divorce state. What...Read more »
We have been separated for years but been very cordial unless/until he dates this women years younger then him, then he starts spending everything he makes.
