Family Law Questions? Ask a Family Lawyer Online.
I am upset that my attorney has not filed, I paid him over a month ago and still he has not filed. It's to late to try and get another. My lease is up on the 18th of June. I am debating to move back into the home until the final outcome. I can pay the mortgage with no problem, but I cannot pay for two places. My husband has changed the locks and I want access to move back into my home to protect my credit and pay the mortgage on time. How can I get access to move back in? What will it mean if I move back in after I have left? I just want my mortgage to be paid on time because I am responsible for it.
One more question. If he files the court order with my request. How long before I receive an answer to my request? I will contact my attorney tomorrow.
Is it possible that he can ask me for spousal support? I tried to pay him my half of the mortgage and he refused because I told him that I was partly responsible. He changed the locks on the house, so I let him have possession. I don't need the support. I just want to pay my mortgage on time until things are finalized. I want access to my home if I have to pay for it.
