My wife kicked me and my children out of her house this past…

Customer Question
My wife kicked me...

My wife kicked me and my children out of her house this past Sunday while my boys and I were out of town for a funeral and about 2 hours ago had my truck picked up. I have been making all the payments and insurance payments. The truck is in her name, but the insurance is in mine. What are my options right now?

Lawyer's Assistant: What state is this in? And how old is the truck?

Texas and we got the truck July 3rd of 2017

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

No

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

Not that I can think of.

One spouse can not unilaterally bar the other from the marital home, absent an abandonment or court order.
If your wife does not want to live with you, she is free to leave, but she can not kick you out.
Call the police and ask them to escort you back to the home so that you can return to the marital home.

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.
