Recent Spousal Abandonment questions

I just finished filing divorce online with completecase.com

I just finished filing for my divorce online with completecase.com and today my husband has decided to open up a separate checking and savings acct and drained out our joint checking and savings acct. We are both Florida residents, my husband is in the military and he was going off the advice from JAG. He is also threatening to cancel my Post 9/11 GI Bill that he transferred to me a couple of years ago to go back to school. I currently have 12 months and 15 days remaining from it as I am unable to physically do my old medical job from injuries that I sustained from a car accident. What are my legal rights?

I am hoping you could help me here. I am in a situation here

I am hoping you could help me here. I am in a situation here that makes me stay away from my spouse on whom I am totally dependent. He has a DVRO served to me. The hearing is still to happen. If its granted and we are still legally married, how can I have him still share his income with me? He has chosen to take it away from the joint account we held.Is there a way I can make him pay for my expenses?What other options I would have if he choses to be legally married to me but takes a RO and how do I go about it?

My Wife left on her own will, after I found out she was

My Wife left on her own will , after I found out she was talking to someone else. I did not kick her out nor got mad. I told her, she could stay, until she found a place, but she refused. Before she left, we came to a verbal agreement on both of our kids, age 6,and 7. She said, she was leaving them with me, because I have help from my mom who takes care of them, takes them and picks them up from school, when we are working. And she was going to stay over at a friends house, and wasn't going to have any help, because of work. But would come and visit them and take them on her time off, and until she had her place, and agreed to help me out financially until the end of the year. She has been visiting and taking the kids with her. But now she doesn't want to help me out anymore, and made it seem, she wants to take the kids with her. What Can I do? We are planning to get a divorce. I would like to have Sole Physical Custody of my kids, and giving her all visitation rights.

I want to know if I can sue my husband for abandoment. When

I want to know if I can sue my husband for abandoment. When my husband is mad at me, he stops speaking to me, we sleep in seperate quarters, he leaves very early in mornings (between 4:30 and 5:30a) and returns after my daughter and I are in bed (between 10p-12a). I don't know where he is and what he is doing. Our agreement was that he would pay the mortgage and I would pay all the bills. In the beginning of Nov. he stopped speaking to me and left me a note and said that he would only be able to pay 1/2 the mortgage for Nov. because he put out too much money in the previous month. He did not pay the mortgage at all. He did pay the mortgage in Dec. Since January, he has not paid the mortgage. I have not personally seen him since Nov. 1st. He left home Tuesday March 27th and has not returned. What do you suggest? Let me add, we married in August of 2008. I paid all the bills, except for the cell phone bill from that time until January 2010. I learned that he did not have any income coming in the day after we got married. Let me also add that last year 2011 from Feb. to August, we did not speak to one another and he had the same pattern. In the last 15 months, my husband and I have been in physical and verbal contact with each other for about 2 1/2 months (late Aug. to Nov. 1st).
