My sisters husband is controlling every aspect of her life,

my sisters husband is controlling every aspect of her life, he also confiscated her phone, he intercepts her debit cards when she orders them, she started air b and b to make SOME money, he transfers all of it into his own account. She has consented to NONE of this, and she has to borrow money from him. Then he won't let her buy basic things for health and stuff because she 'owes' him. So now she has no $ to care for her 2 year old( whom he spends ZERO time with), let alone herself. What can be done?

I am currently "separated" from my husband of 10 yrs. and by

Hello. I am currently "separated" from my husband of 10 yrs. and by "separated" meaning we still live in the same apartment but in separate rooms. He originally wanted a divorce and announced it on Nov 2015. It's been 7 months and nobody has filed and his main reason for it is because he cannot afford it. He makes $50k a year and we have two children together both under 18. I am currently on disability due to an illness that requires me to be on dialysis 3x a week. I also recently acquired a weekend part time job (2x a week). He has consulted with a lawyer back in November and was told for both our incomes, I only get $500 for child support for both kids and alimony. I want to now file for the divorce because my situation at home is not the best for me and my children emotionally. My husband has now spent at least $10k on himself (since the separation) and his parents are helping pay for the apartment. So basically, most his paycheck goes to himself and whatever purchases he makes for himself. I wanted to get advice on what steps I should do to move forward with the divorce. I am unable to work full time due to my illness and he wants me to work full time to support myself. I just want to know if alimony and child support for me and my children is in fact $500. Thank you and any info would be greatly appreciated!

I am in a dilemma. My daughter and I both know that my

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?

I have been married years now but the last ten have been

I have been married for 25 years now but the last ten have been awful. He lies, cheats, is addicted to pornography and is emotionally and verbally abusive. I cannot prove the adultery but I know what my eyes have seen. I will have to use a different ground to sue for divorce. Here is my issue. We have owned and operated our own small business for 10 years now. It is the only income I receive. He tells me I get nothing if I leave so how do I protect myself financially so I can leave him and get away from him? Surely I feel entitled to my rights and to what is rightfully mine. By the way, I live in Mississippi.

I live in Utah and was divorced 2.5 years ago. Last August we remarried so she could have health insurance. We kept separate households and I continued the alimony and child support per our previous agreement. I now want a divorce again. Does the remarriage "restart" the alimony clock?
