No one has asked me for any financial information... He does make twice what I do. No my husband doesn't have any medical without me. I always had him on mine. The collection notices are in my name because I am the one whom they are for. But they were aquired while we were living together.
So far the divorce process has been civil. I don't want to ask for anything that's not mine. We were only married a couple of years But together for over six. My auto insurance has always been paid by him but last month he canceled my vehicle & my sons off the joint policy. Keep in mind my vehicle is in both of our names. Can anything be done?
In Washington State, all property acquired during the marriage is generally deemed community property and must be divided equally at divorce. This includes real estate, spouse’s earnings, pension benefits and 401(k) contributions.
Even if the court assigns the particular debts, which you and your spouse need to pay, it is very possible that your spouse may not follow this. The company or persons to whom you owe the debts may still come after you and you may be forced to pay for them. In this case, you may sue your spouse so that the court can order him/her to pay you back.
But remember, in a divorce, everything is on the table regarding your assets and debts. If you and your soon to be ex come to an agreement, then so long is it is fair, the judge will enter the final divorce decree. But, if you cannot agree, the above factors are taken into consideration.

So, If both parties still live in the househild, papers have not been filed yet. But the wife is drunk almost nightly, calls my cell phone 8-14 times within a three hour period. The other night she was pushing & hitting me. I didn't respond the way she wanted. She did tell me that she was hoping I would put my hands on her so she could call the cops. How do I get her to move out of the home? My son is a senior in high scholl and doesn't even like coming home if I'm not there. She can not afford the household bills. Is there a motion of some sort that I can file. She has to go. I take prescription narcotics for my Crohnes disease and lately my pills have not been lasting the full time. Come to find out she's been taking my pain pills now. I have locked them up in my vehickle along with guns bacause she states she's going to hurt herself. What can I do?
