I'm looking for advise/direction on possible domestic/divorce situaion

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

Washington state

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

No. I just need some information

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

My husband is going to be 67, continues to work to help fund his son's way of life. When he is short, it falls on me. When we try and talk about the situation, he either loses his temper or doesn't talk at all. My husband recently purchased an SUV for him. I need to find out what I can do to prevent my money going to his son

Divorce here would be good way to divide assets and assign him the car debt and the car/suv.If you need to separate finances then divorce is the way to do that.I would consider a local lawyer to file and protect your interests in all of this.
