You want a divorce and he is not agreeable to it?
yes, and there's domestic violence in our hx, not documented cuz he's in the Navy. CO of a ship, when I told him I wanted a divorce he had me held on a 51/50 hold at the Naval Hosp San Diego with the help of friend who's a Reg. nurse (I am too). The magic words-she's a danger to herself/or others was all it took. I need assistance!
I am now in a hurry, he has tried to cut off access to all our $$ and since it's the weekend, I'm screwed
He also broke into the house when I accidentally left a door open and stole some things from me!
I am no longer concerned with his career, just his safety and mine. Since I was just hospitalized I have been treated terribly. He stole narcotics, enough to kill a horse from the house! I don't know where he is and 911 sent the cops to me and they told me I was about to be re-commited because I am concerned for his welfare...he won't live to see Monday a.m.
I am sorry to hear of this situation. So what information can I provide for you?
I was held on a 51/50 hold for only about 30 hours with no meds and no treatment. I did not know what my legal rights were, and I am interested in a civil suit against my soon to be ex husband, the 'friend' who was involved in my involuntary commitment, as well as the Naval Medical Center San Diego, since they did not assess me properly after speaking with the other parties involved. I had situational depression issues due to life stress in the remote past, and due to chronic pain which I've had now for almost 4 years. I took myself off the narcotics and the anti-depressants a long time ago, and feel so much better without them. Do you think I have a case?
