Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Thank you for this. I still had the other part of my question though, which is
QUESTION: If I have to move out of the area for work, can I do so and not get divorced..then come back to see my son and stay in that house or at least stay at my mom's 1/10 mile away and have my son come to me... then once I have money I'll file for visiting/sharing and divorce. Can my husband deny me access to my son?
What do I do when he tells me that I can't come into the house or "You can't take Nick with you now because he has other obligations?" (I was told that in October when I left the first time. Later Nick told me the other obligations were playing with the kids across the street.)
What do I do when he won't answer the telephone so I can speak to my son, or interrupts the call to say it's time to do something else? (The last time I was in PA he did that 4 times in the 7 days I was gone, even though I said I will call daily between 7:30 & 8pm to speak with Nick.)
Yes sir. My name is XXXXX XXXXX deed to the home but not on the mortgage. We purchased the home 1 1/2 years before we were married, when I was pregnant with our first child. We lost that child during childbirth (very premature). 12 months later had Nicholas. We got married a year later. So, the house was purchased about 1 1/2 - 2 years prior to our marriage.
The house is currently underwater financially. I don't want the house I can't afford the 900/mo mortgage. Let him have it. He'll need it to raise Nicky in. I want to move into my Mom's house, about 1/10 mile away.
Thank you for your assistance. I spoke with Mr. Steve Tanner with National Family Solutions and I have retained their services. I am probably going to have more questions but I think I now need to bring them through my case manager, Tara Nickson. Thank you so much for your help and for referring me to Steve.
Have a good day!
My only other question would be is it better to remain in the home at this point or stay with Mom around the corner at this point? Mom does still need my help mainly for emotional reasons... since Dad died 2 weeks ago she's on an emotional roller coaster and the evenings are hard for her - the house is now so quiet and she falls apart then. That's why I am there to help, and that is the excuse I am using with my husband.
I still have 99% of my things at the house... only enough clothes for about 3 days at mom's. So, technically I have not moved out yet. I can continue this way or I can return to his house and stay over a few days here a few days there... I can deal with that. Once he gets served it's going to be hell there though.
Ok. Thank you very much for everything, Because of the discussions I have had with you and Steve Tanner I am feeling SO much better!
Have a wonderful day and thank you so much for referring me to National Family Solutions. I hope everything works out well.
