My sister and her husband really just have a lot of credit card debt between them, an unpaid off sailboat, an old car he has "given" her that is paid off. They are both on the lease of a 2500$ per month apt. where she no longer lives and has not lived for over 30 days.
She is leaving the state today for a trip that could be perceived as "leaving" the state. They no longer live together and things have been amicable so far. My sister's husband; however, is now aware of a possible infidelity on her part. My sister is, I think, being unwise about this and is not retaining an atty or filing before leaving the state. The state she is going to is where the supposed ifidelity lives. Please advise. The husband is still saying he wants things to be amicable.
How soon, if my sister did file, could she be eligible for emergency spousal support? Thank you so much.
