I've been married to a physically and mentally abusive alcoholic for a little over three years. His name is XXXXX XXXXX my lease. He's been arrested several times, the most recently in September 2012 for physical abuse. Because he's taken me down so far, I couldn't afford to live without his paycheck. Things are different now, I have options. He's not attending court ordered anger management classes, and I know when he leaves he's going back to South Carolina, thank God. My question is how do I get him out of my home? What is my responsibility to the bail bondsman if he skips, I can't afford to pay it. Since, I'm older and disabled can I ask for any kind of financial support from him, since he's taken everything of value I've had and stolen cash from me also? He's a habitual liar, I've caught him cheating in my home while I was at work and he drinks every day, not socially, to get drunk. I'm afraid of him, he's put me in the hospital three times, all of which I lied and said I had fallen. Can you please help me? I'm at the end of my rope. At this point I don't care what I have to do, I just need him gone. Please help me!!! Sincerely, XXXXX XXXXX ( I don't even use his last name which is xxxx) please respond as soon as possible, my time is very limited.
