I'm in CA & have been separated (not legally) for almost 2 years. One reason we separated is due to my husbands drinking. If he drinks & drives his truck (I know he does), the car is registered in my name (he made the pmts) & he has an accident, can I be sued & is my inherited property (inherited 3 years ago) at risk? Must I divorce to protect mine & my childrens assets? We never purchased a home together. Haven't divorced yet because I'm still holding on to a string of hope. Am I jeapardizing what I have?
