My daughter is getting divorced....and since this began she

My daughter is getting divorced....and since this began she has disconnected with me ( her mother, Laura)... Little history is she is hostile, hot/cold, controlling and I am not an expert (I am a RN HOWEVER) BUT I have been learning more about narcissist and I think this describes the behavior I have witnessed most of her life (in retrospect)...She has pulled me into her relationship even when I have asked her not to and over last few years her now husband and I have developed a closer bond essentially because we both found ourselves in the same situations with my daughter... It led to us eventually confiding in each other..she has been threatened by this even though we both individually and unknown to each other to stop being hateful and listen to us and communicate with us respectfully ***** ***** for whatever reason (narcissist?) she CAN NOT see what the heck we are talking about..she doesn't do anything wrong it's everyone else just not understanding her..Soooo...when all of this came to a head and she cut me off which I then turned to him so I could see my grand kids through him....Of course infuriated her... He and I have texted back and forth and she is now going to ask her attorney to obtain phone records so she can see THE ACTUAL TEXT CONTENT so in her words "to show her attorney to use AGAINST us"..So #1 can the actual text content be seen#2 is their anything she could possibly use AGAINST us in court?.. I just can't feature what

Hope you are well. My marriage of 26 years has been

Hello. Hope you are well. My marriage of 26 years has been difficult mainly due to him. I am seeking divorce even though he says he does not want. I think that's because he doesn't want to part with anything. I feel he is waiting for me to initiate a divorce then I really feel he will use my bi-polar disorder against me and try to say I am crazy so he can cut me out of everything. What can I do about this? I am not interested in a long court battle even though I feel this is the route he wants to take. Thank you.hAtcan

I have been married years, and recently informed

Hi, I have been married for 17 years, and recently informed my husband I would like a divorce. Among many other things the main reason is that he is an alcoholic and suffers from depression. We adopted twins who are just turned 5, and have a house, a business, and a camp. He stayed with his father for a couple weeks, but now came back and refuses to leave the house. This is very awkward and uncomfortable. I know I have made my decision to leave him. He has moved into our sons room for now. Is there any legal way I can get him to leave the house and live somewhere else?
