I need some advice. I've recently separated from the father

Hi I need some advice. I've recently separated from the father of my 2 kids we had verbally agreed on splitting all assets equally. Things got out of control I felt unsafe at my house and left I'm currently stating at a relatives. He now argues that i have a right to nothing and demanded me to give him back the car that is under our name. My question is what can i do? To not lose everything? Because according to him since my income was lower i don't deserve anything. He keeps trying to intimidate me by telling me that there is no point of going to court.JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: New MexicoJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: No this past Saturday I was about to call the cops because he threaten me with taking my kids and throwing away my belongings. I didn't because my family advised me to just give him back the car and get my stuff. Which he did not even allow me to doJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: He has a DWI so he has to have a breathalizer in his vehicle.

Ok, I have a 16-year-old staying at my home. She has been here for about 3 weeks. She is adamant about not returning to her mother because it is an abusive environment. Her mother told the police and the school that she wants her daughter to come home, but she told her daughter that she doesn't want her and if she comes home she won't feed her or take care of her at all. She shut off her phone and refuses to pay for anything. She said she's not her responsibility and technically she's correct because she doesn't have custody. Her father has legal custody. her mother lost custody because she is bipolar, schizophrenic, multiple personalities (refuses to take meds) but is also a drug addict and alcoholic and abuses and neglects her children. The child doesn't even have a bed and has holes in her clothing and shoes. The police told the mother they would contact child protective services if she bothered them again because the child is better off without her and the conditions are horrible. The child wants to become emancipated, but she hasn't found a stable job yet. I don't want me or my husband to get in trouble because we are helping her, but she has nowhere to go and she doesn't want to get taken by CPiS because she says the shelters are horrible. I want to know what I can do.

I am looking for a lawyer / firm that might walk me through

I am looking for a lawyer / firm that might walk me through the process of a harassment / slander / defamation suit, against the local newspaper. Do I have grounds. What is the likely outcome. Is it worth it. That sort of stuff.

This was a complex parental kidnapping trial, and the defendant - my ex spouse - was found guiltyJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: The newspaper report was astonishingly biased, tried to paint ME as the bad guy, and the perpetrator as a victim - taking the defense's side verbatim. There is more than just bias here, there is bigotry
