if my husband ends up going to court because his mother and father took his identity without permission, do I have to go too or can I stay at home with my 3 yr old?

because I havent seen my evil MIL for more than 2 years and I feel good about staying away from her and it really gets me worried that I would have to see her in court, I think it should just be my hubby and his lawyer and his evil parents in court.

  • depends on what you are comfortable with. but i don't think you have to, since this is your husband's identity and not your own.

  • Technically, he doesn't even need to go as long as your attorney is going. If you're not named as a party to the complaint, there's no reason for you to go.

  • You don't have to go unless you get a subpoena.

  • That depends on how much you know, and how much you can affect his case. But if it comes down to you not wanting to see her again, and your hubby needing or wanting you there, then you need to go. That sucks that they did that to him.

  • Find a sitter, someone you deeply trust and go with him for support.

  • Let’s put it this way. If it was happening to you and your parents, would you want your husband to be with you as a support system? What would you think of your husband?

  • you only have to go if you were listed in the lawsuit as one of the people involved (Plaintiff or Defendant) or if you wanted to show your dh support in a situation that is obviously going to be stressful for him. If you don't go I'm sure he'll remember just that.

  • If you as the "in-law" doesn't want to see his parents you can imagine how he must feel having to face his own parents that did that to him. Show a united front to them. Good luck to you and your family, I'm sure this is a difficult time for you.
