This is a Q&A series of blog articles for those couples considering divorce.
They married as adults. Traveled. Enjoyed music. Went to the mountains all over Europe to ski. and then the world changed. He helped her with her life, she got cancer, he reached an agreement with her and left the country. and then distance, and divorce.
My husband of 47 years has moved out of state. He said he would let me stay in the house and support me. But now he is moving money out of state and removing my name from accounts. I do not work full time. I am unsure of my legal rights. I still love him. But I know I need to protect myself. Yet I do not want to shut the door if he is willing to come back. I have so many good memories with him. Oh Lynda, what should I do?

I feel stupid writing to you, but I am married and do not know where my husband is. He left several years ago and we did not stay in touch. Is my marriage over since I am not "married" now?? I have a teenager and we are fine. Some help with college for my son would be nice, but I do not have alot of money for an attorney. What do you think I should do?
Alone in Belfair
My wife is mentally ill and untrustworthy. We have three small children and I am fearful for their mental, emotional and physical safety. My wife lies to me about how she cares for them and her parents support her. My youngest is a boy who is now having trouble sleeping and seems afraid. I have asked for a divorce and my wife screams at me that I will NEVER see my kids again. Now I can protect them so I am staying in the house but I only want what is best for the children. Please help me.
Sad in Seattle
My husband and I have no money. We are upside down on our house. I work and so does he, but we barely make enough to pay our bills. We have two children and I need to get them away from their father. He is abusive, and has little time for "good", in my eyes, parenting. Why can't we get a divorce without it costing an arm and a leg?
Pissed, poor and unhappy in Seattle
Please accept my sympathy for your situation.
My friends think I have it made. I am older. My husband has a ton of money. I have a new car. A beautiful house. Whatever I ask for, he gives me. But I have no emotional relationship with him. I do not share his bed. I am living with a stranger. He is nice I guess, and pays for whatever I want. I have not had to work in decades. Yet I am thinking of divorce. Please tell me what to do.
Older but not wiser
what procedures do you have to take to get a divorce if you have been separated for 40 years if the spouse is alive and will not sign papers for divorce?
There are ways to complete a divorce with a non willing spouse. Please find a law firm that has experience in this more complex situation and more forward. 40 years is long enough to be in limbo!
Dear Aunt Anna,
I want to get a divorce but attorneys are so expensive. We do not have much and I just want a simple divorce and to be done with him. I think he will be fine with paying off the bills and providing for our children. He makes so much more money than I do. So why can't I just pay 500 dollars or less and be done with it?
