Resolved Question:

My Husband said he wanted a divorce about 6 weeks ago. And I think he is
trying to have me commited so he does not have to give me anything. What can I
do to protect myself I do not need to be commited. I am on medication and I am
fine.   He has had me commited one time before.

Hello there:

I don't know whether your husband is trying to have you committed or not, but I do have good news: even if you did need to be committed, he does not have the right to deprive you of property or alimony in the event of a divorce. If anything, it would probably increase his alimony obligation to you because, as someone who is mentally ill, you would be less capable of providing for yourself post-divorce. If he thinks that having you committed will in any way relieve his duty to care for you post-divorce or to divide your property together, he is in for a big surprise.

Can I keep my questions and answers off display? Does my email address show

by my questions and answers? How much social security disability can I get?

Your email address and identity do not show, so you are completely anonymous, but I can have the question marked as "private" so that even the conversation does not display if you wish.

How much social security disability you can get is an entirely different area of law. If you would like to open a new question, just mention me by name in the question and I will be glad to help.
