Customer Question
Me and my wife...

Me and my wife filled for divorce on 9-1-17 and she moved out, now she wants to move back in against my will after 4 months. What can I do?

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

Washington State, I live on a boat so it's hard to just lock her out.

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

Not about this, she's on her way here. the police said to call a lawyer but none are open today.

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

I have her 40,000 dollars and I kept the boat, that was our agreement.

Please allow me several minutes to read your facts and type my response both initially and when you add a follow up question or add facts. Please don't ask "are you there", "where is my answer", etc., since when you post it can erase what I am working on. If we are having a conversation unless I tell you I am going offline, I will be here but I may be doing research.

Did the judge issue any kind of temporary orders after you filed for divorce?

Was the boat purchased during the marriage or, if not, when?

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

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.

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.
