Someone please help. Finally divorcing emotional abusive and alcoholic husband (functional or course, my luck. a chance. He denies problems or that his drinking is an issue for us and our relationship and I know my Daughter has NEVER seen love between us. we had intimacy only few times in past few years,
I asked for church and regular counseling, he went 2x he denied his part in dissolved marriage.
We agreed on separation process and we have been living separate in every sense under same roof still , for 2 yrs now, separate beds, separate finances, just a futile attempt at counseling then mediation , where he got angry and left deciding he'd use his lawyer.
He refuses to move out and he gleefully reminds me he is writing down everything I say, do, or text and I harass him. I purchased my house before marriage. He wants alimony and 50/50 w daughter and 50/50
of my income. I only text and do not have conversations with him because of my daughter around . I desperately want to get away from him and I don't trust the process will move quickly. He won't move out. What can I do. Is it not safe for me to move out now bc its abandonment? We have no custody in place ... And just taking my girl on days we already agreed on having her could been frowned upon? Or my ability to pay for rent somewhere and half mortgage here would show I can "afford" to pay him alimony? I'd do anything to get out and start fresh asap, I told him I'd like to sell house he said I should wait because agreement hasn't been met and living situations haven't been decided. I still feel controlled and stepped on even at this point. Ball is in his court and my attorney can't do anything yet until we get counter, which husband says a lot needs to be changed. Can anyone help me get free legally during this mess? We have been married for 8 years.
