Customer Question
My husband is no...

My husband is no longer living in our home and I am filing divorce papers. He still insists he has a right to come and go as he pleases. Is this right?

Lawyer's Assistant: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

Washington

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?

Yes but not about this issue

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I changed the locks, and have asked him to leave me alone.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
