What does your cousin hope to see happen?
Is she prepared to separate from him?
If she considers that the marriage has broken down she can apply to the court for spousal support. Her spouse will be required by way of an order to provide her with financial support. So it is not as if she needs to obtain his WCB payments, which she cannot do , but she can obtain financial payments from her spouse.
There is no way that a court would order that the spouse has to take care of her physically, but the spousal support would cover her payments to third parties who would provide her care.
Sadly, she cannot force him to go through rehab.
Her next step should be to consult with a family lawyer face to face. If she cannot get out to do that then it is possible for her to have a telephone conversation.
Your very welcome.
