My sister is seeking to file with her husband here in

My sister is seeking to file for divorce with her husband here in Michigan. She can no longer put up the way he treats her and the stress is not good for her recent and ongoing battle with cancer. They don't get along and constantly argue. I personally haven't talked to him in nearly 3 years for the way he treats her. They each have one child left in the house (from prior relationships) around the ages of 15/16.Now, not that any of that matters much, it's all hearsay, or whatever they call it. So, my question is this:What is the best approach for her to get out of the house ASAP without her husband claiming abandonment?Further to that… What are the first few steps she should take in preparation to file for divorce?I know that's a lot to answer for an online advice forum, but any help is greatly appreciated until we can obtain a lawyer next week.Thanks in advance.

I 't know why my responses are not showing up. I may take

For Doug ***I don't know why my responses are not showing up. I may take you up on the phone call but not this weekend when my husband is home. The biggest issue that my daughter and I are facing is the verbal abuse that we are subjected to on behalf of my husband. On top of that, he refuses to get a job. Just for the record, he has a doctorate in electrical engineering, has founded a start-up company, has a real estate license, has worked in corporate America as a middle-level manager in program management for 20 years and is a graphic designer, commercial photographer and videographer, but he won't get a job because he says that he is 62 years old and shouldn't have to work, so I am basically supporting the family. We are in the middle of a refinance, so I don't want to disrupt anything until that goes through before I file for divorce. Since I am pretty much of the breadwinner around here, I was told that I would have to pay my husband spousal support instead of the other way around and he is not disabled in any way. Is that true? I don't have a problem with child support, since I already pay most of my daughter's bills. The verbal abuse and severe negativity around here really has to stop, so is there any way that we can kick my husband out of the house? Also, if my husband does move out of the house and moves in with his mistress, will I still have to pay him spousal support?

I am in a dilemma. My daughter and I both know that my husband is having an affair with a fiend of ours. He refuses to work, so I am making most of the income around here. Even when he says that he is going out to meet with clients, we know that he is with his mistress. However, the problem has gotten worse in that he has become verbally abusive to both of us and he finds fault with just about everything that we do or say. Mind you that I pay most of the bills around here, including the mortgage. We would like to kick him out of the house but don't know how. Any advice?

Live in Michigan. Husband has not worked in 20 years. s

Live in Michigan. Husband has not worked in 20 years. His mother sends him funds to run the household and give play money to him. His Mother has set up a trust fund in her name and his (but she controls all monies now). When I file for divorce, will I have to give him spousal support? WILL HE NEVER HAVE TO PAY CHILD SUPORT? If this money given to my now husband, is considered a gift? Isn't their limits on gift giving per year? And, how does that 'loser" qualify for support? I would like full custody of my 2 daughters as he cannot be trusted. Please help....Thank you
