I have a pending divorce. She walked out on me in September

I have a pending divorce. She walked out on me in September and she took everything she wanted. She never worked, I paid for everything she took. I gave her over $25,000.00 in cash while we were married for four years. I paid off all her credit cards when we married. She never contributed one penny to the household. I asked my attorney if it was okay to take a lady friend out to dinner and he told me that it was okay. Given that he told me it was okay, IF she decides otherwise, does that make a difference in court should she decide to go that route?JA: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in? Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Texas. She served me with the divorce papers prohibiting me from "buying, selling, donating, etc.". Nothing in the divorce papers served does it prohibit me from seeing anyone, male or female.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No, other than what I told you.

My husband all but used force to get me to quit my career

My husband all but used force to get me to quit my career after our now 6year old daughter was born. Since then I've been stay home mom. Last July she came to me with disturbing things regarding "games" they played and now she's too big . I won't go into more detail as it was investigated and unfounded. But even so I knew he would retaliate for challenging him as that is how this man has responded to me historically. I didn't leave him but 3 months later he was able to get an emergency protective order on me through the help of my 19 year old son who has been aligned with my husband for the past 4 years. The two together are terrifying. I never reported all this to police before because aside from the recent allegation the last time I notified law enforcement about my husband taking my son 16 at the time to smoke m.j. when I tried to remain anonymous the police were very rude and said it was like giving your kid champagne at a wedding. He said he would tell my husband it was me or he would call CPS. Neither worked for me but I opted for the latter. Sure enough DHS came and the two of them lied through their teeth. I've been punished since and my husband even took my daughter for 2 days to a hotel room while my son kept post outside my bedroom door. So speaking up equated to me losing my daughter. I stayed because of that and was conditioned to use self incrimination as my only form of control to keep from him doing it again. Back to the protective order. I was asleep on my couch in the living room. My son called police stating I was overdosed. Police came barging in and I woke immediately. I took them into the garage where I had been cleaning and on the table was my prescription medications some crushed with straws. He also gave them my bottles of pills that were way low on count. I was in shock. My son stood there smirking while I tripped all over my words. I admitted to 4 years ago doing that with one of my meds but no more. It was not believed. They took my daughter opening a case on me now but little did I know the protective order was already underway and subsequently granted by the judge. I have not seen my daughter in 4 months now as I have done what I was told. I did an assessment and at first was told I was not at risk for addiction treatment then told an hour later nevermind I do have to because the report said I had low pill count. Last 3 months now taking tests...But still denied supervision since my husband apparently had the cash to hire an equally narcissistic attorney. I finally got phone calls but the third one was the last as he said I was inappropriate on the call. Without continuing my novel I will just ask you to trust me that never once have I said a disparaging remarks about my husband to my children even if I feel it because I know it's important not to talk about these matters with the kids. OK so I did after firing the first attorney got another one that although smart doesn't match the opposing counsel in aggression. My husband did take my daughter out of our house and I've been staying here but since I'm a stay home mom and now finding out he somehow refinanced the mortgage taking my name off it his attorney is filing for him to get the house back in the interim because I am not maintaining it and I can't refinance anyway and he needs to prepare it for sale. Well I can get a good paying job and I don't want to sell. He has 2 business he owns one and the other he owns half. He also fraudulently put me down as an employee and I even got a w2 making almost 9k. He told me to file unemployment on it. I never worked for him. He picked the money himself. My attorney now is just family law but this is only tip of the iceberg of his shady business dealings. I know I'm sporadic with my questions bcuz this case is complicated. He is a liar, thief, criminal and he is a registered sex offender to boot. It was when he was 18 and I tried to help him apply for a pardon and post conviction relief all the way to theJA: Since estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Oregon. And I meant he pocketed the payroll money on the w2JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Just my current attorney asking I get my daughter back because we complied with going to treatment and random drug tests. All the drug tests have shown just my oerscribed medication. Also the family house I asked for exclusive rights to use it but so did he for the reasons he statedJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No I think that's it for now

1. I've been married for almost 4 years, no kids together. I

1. I've been married for almost 4 years, no kids together. I plan on filing for divorce, but I want to move out first, and without her knowing. If she knows I'm filing she's going to flip out and there is the potential she'll get violent, it's happened before, or make something up and call the police to try and get me arrested. My question is, can I move out while she's at work and doesn't know I'm leaving legally? And, can I take 1 of the 2 TV's we have, 1 of the 2 extra beds, the couch and cabinet the TV sits on in our game room while we go through the divorce process? She'll still have all the living room furniture like couch and TV, which is where we spend 97% of our time, master bedroom furniture, etc. I just want the basics until we figure out who is getting what. Other than these items I'll take my cloths, motorcycle, bike, pictures and some items that were passed down to me before we were ever married. Can I legally do this?How do I prevent her from coming to my work and apartment? Do I get a restraining order? If I have something like that in place does it prevent me from going to the house to prep for selling?
