I have been living with a man for over 6yrs He is not

I have been living with a man for over 6yrs He is not getting a divorce because he is afraid of the wife getting half the house. She left him 8yrs ago after a short marriage. They continue to file taxes together. He says it benefits him. I do not see where it does. After 10 yrs of marriage she gets his social security a great increase for her. He has been very sick the last couple years and I have taken care of him 24 hrs aday and is very hard. She is out there having a good time just waiting for him to die where she will get the house and I am out on the streets in addition to his ss. Is there anything that can be done so that she can not get the house. He is 78 and is afraid of losing his house. He and his sister inherited it. He bought his sister out. He does not have much in the way of savings He just has the house. Can he take her name off the house even though they are not divorced. I love him but I do not think it is right that shingse holds over him since she is the one who left the marriage. If I were to leave he would most likely have to go in nursing home. His health is such that he can not live alone. I do not want to leave him I love him very much. It just makes me angry that I take care of him and then she gets his Social security and house. When they were married she did a good job of cleaning him out so he has little in savings. Now she is waiting to get the house. I wonder if a reverse mortgage might be a good idea. Thank you ann Tack

His 18 year old son started a SUNY 2 year school in upstate NY this year, which includes room & board. My husband told me all along that when the kids went to school, his child support would stop while they were boarding. His ex wife informed him that he waived that right in their divorce agreement.

I am putting together a reply to a response to Alter Amend

I am putting together a reply to a response to Alter Amend or to vacate in a family court proceeding. in the Reply the Attorney for the petitioner tried to misrepresent the testimony of a witness. I am able to show that this is not only false but the petitioner's attorney was involved in the dialogue. I have also through the Petitioner's own words showing that she lied regarding a document she provided as evidence in a previous hearing and in regard to assets. I am asking for attorney fees and for her to be held in contempt. I am also asking that the attorney be held in contempt for his written response and misleading statements. Is this out of line ?
