Customer Question

My husband is a very heavy drinker, possibly alcoholic. He drives under influence. Is there any way to protect me (assets) if he gets ticketed? We've been married for 37 years. I don't see his behavior changing anytime soon but I don't want to be blind-sided. I don't want to lose everything we've worked for because oh his irresponsibility.
JA: Because traffic laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
Customer: Tennessee
JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: Not yet but he was given a warning by our local police We'd. night but still arrives home with an open beer every night
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: No
