What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? Arkansas
My wife and I have been together for 9 years, married 4 years. Things have not been well between us for a while now. Last month she suspected me of infidelity with no real proof other than the fact I was very good friends with this woman. The other woman was leaving her husband, I was not happy in my marriage and we both became each others sounding boards basically. On the day the other woman left her husband, my wife was in the process of "throwing me out" of our home. She was screaming and cussing and telling me if I didn't leave she was gonna call the police and have me removed. Just as I finished packing my 2 bags of clothes, the other woman pulled into our driveway to inform us she was leaving and to please make sure her husband did nothing stupid. I caught her before she got to the door and told her it was not a good time. As I went back in, my wife said "There's your ride, now get the @#$* out". I ran back out, asked where she was going. She didn't know. I asked if I could go with. She said yes. Long, Long story short, we went to Alabama for 2 weeks. I then contacted my wife and asked to come back and try to work through things. She said ok. Once I was back, her daughter was visiting. I was not allowed in the house for fear it may upset her 27 year old daughter. I was made to eat my meals outside, and had to wait til 1-2am to "sneak" into my own home to take a shower after her daughter went to bed. Things went fine after the daughter left. I was allowed in again. Now things have turned for the worse. Divorce is eminent. She thinks she is entitled to everything because I left for 2 weeks. She says I abandoned her and our home/property. She forgets that she threw me out or was going to call the police. She argues that she only wanted me to leave for 30 minutes or so. All of our property is paid for. Land, home, truck, furnishings all owned free and clear. The truck was purchased 6 months ago and it was put into her name alone. Not a $35000 vehicle. A 2001 model worth maybe $3k. I told her She can keep everything but I want the truck and my personal belongings. NO WAY! is her answer. You are getting nothing! Since the vehicle is in her name, she said if I leave in it, she will report it stolen. What can I do? I am trapped in Arkansas at the mercy of her. Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
