Hello all,
New with my head spinning. In Sept. my husband said we had no choice but to file bankrupcy, including surrendering our home of 10 years.

It was final on Nov. 10, I came home 3 days later to a partically empty home, including dumping my things in a box and taking my dresser and so many other things.

He has paid for a lawyer, filed divorce, paid for movers, paid for a new apt. and set up, new furniture..and after paying all of his "expense" split what was left in the joint account.

I had NO idea of ANY of this! I kissed him goodbye in the morning and told him to have a great day...and came home to almost nothing.

I now have 2000 to my name to accomplish everything he did as the house will be taken back who knows when.

I need some guidence. I can't pay for a lawyer, and move, and pay for storage. He makes 95k a year..I make 21K

If he would have asked for a divorce I would have been ok with was time I think, but to do this to someone has to look bad to a judge. He even took the washer and dryer. :confused:

I am so sorry that you are going through this. Atlanta Legal Aid may be able to help you - they have a number of offices across the state depending on what county you are in. You can access them on the Web at I know several people who they have assisted with contested divorces. Good luck and feel free to email or PM me if you would like more information.

I am not an attorney and this is not legal advice. [censored]://[censored]
