What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? North Carolina
I have been married for 8 years, but for the last 5 yrs I have been the only one working and paying bills. I decided 5 weeks ago that our marriage has been over for a long time and instead of praying that our marriage get better I started praying that the transition be easy for the kids. Well my husband is not making anything easy for the kids. I have asked him to leave almost on a daily basis for the past 5 weeks. He won't go. How do I get him out of the house. The house was purchased 3 yrs ago and b/c we are married his name is on the title but the loan is in my name only. He had no job, so the mortage company would not run his credit. Every month the house payment comes out of my personal bank account (not joint). We have 3 kids and I am not wanting this to get ugly, but I want him gone. I spoke with a detective who told me there is nothing I can do until I get a lawyer. Apparently if I change the locks he has every right to knock the door down to get in because the home is in his name too. I don't have money to leave and rent another home until he decides to leave while I am still paying my mortage every month. Please can someone help me? I'm almost to tears with no options left. By the way I had 2 lawyers quote me 5000 to take care of the matter. HELP!
