Hi again, and thank you.
With regard to your post:I am currently living with a male friend in oregon since 8/2/2010. Is this a romantic/sexual relationship, or platonic?
I have been separated from my husband, not legally, since 6/2/2008. Who moved out in 6/08?
I was diagnosed with Parkinson's 7/2005 and with breast cancer 5/2009. Very sorry to hear this.
My friend offered to help care for me when my husband refused to help. That is wonderful, I'm very glad you have such a friend. How has he been helping you and since what time period? Did he have to help you when you were still living with the husband?
We are just starting divorce proceedings, my husband served me papers, filing for divorce. It is about time, no?
Is my living situation going to be a problem and my friend has bought tickets to take me to Europe because my health is steadily degenerating. Will that be a problem as well? Not that I can see. On what grounds did your husband file for divorce on?
This is my last chance physically to go. How long will you be going for? Vacation or treatment? Just make sure to not miss court dates.
My financial background : stay at home mother of 5 for 25+ years. I have not made enough income to qualify for any social security. You need to file for SSI if you haven't already and feel you are unable to work, from medical impairment limitations. SSI does not require insured status/work history, just indigency. Also, speak to SSA about if you can qualify for SSD on your husband's record, and if not, at what age, if any, that may be possible.
Obviously, you will be asking for spousal support
. I would actual counterclaim for divorce based on his abandonment
of your medical needs, if that is what he has done. For instance, if you can't drive and he refused to take you to the doctors, refused to put food in the house, etc. You can also file for child custody
of if not appropriate, absolutely for full visitation
. As it stands now, you have the same rights as he to the children, so you could go pick them up today. Would likely tick him off, but it seems he is an angry man anyway.
Good luck. You can do this.
