I am planning on divorcing my husband. I will meet with my attorney soon. I am sure she will tell me what I need to do. I do NOT KNOW if she will be able to advise me on how to get my spouse to leave the premises. I have read that a spouse has a right to stay in the marital house. In fact, I have even read that there is really no legal recourse to remove a spouse, even after a divorce from a house. I don't believe that.
Has anyone had a similar situation in the past?
Perhaps I can get a restraining order. My soon to be ex is an alcoholic who is a DUI felon and who denies having a problem with alcohol. I suspect he is drinking again, although behind my back when he goes with his mom to their lake house. When he drank, he would have no control over his temper and smashed things up a couple of times, destroying my property. I took pictures, but that was 4 years ago. However, the only time he didn't drink was when the courts were on him and when he was on work release. He also has a pistol now.
Can I request a police officer to remove him from the premises?
Any input would be greatly appreciated.
