My husband wants a divorce. What do I do?

We have been married for 4 years and have a 2 year old daughter. He just told me that he does not love me anymore and he wants a divorce and he told me to move out and he's keeping my daughter because I have nothing. So let me elaborate I was raised in ca and he in nc we met and married in ca then moved to nc 3 years ago. So all my family is in ca and our house and 3 cars are all in his name. (I don't have very good credit) so he's saying since everything is in his name he can kick me out and I have to leave and I can't take my daughter because I have no where to go. What do I do. I want to leave him also I haven't been happy for a long time I was just trying to hold it together for my daughters sake but if he's just going to throw us away then why should I continue to fight for something that's not there. I just don't want to leave without my daughter I am a stay at home mom. I have been the one to raise my child since day one he doesn't work either(he's a disabled veteran) but he's always gone hanging out with his buddies so it's like I'm a single mom already. He just comes and goes as he pleases. If anyone has some advice please let me know I really need it. Thank you.

I am so sorry he is putting you through this Sweetie. I would get a lawyer. You shouldn't have to move out or loose your daughter. It really stinks that he is doing this. Hugs

Thank you. It really sucks I hate it more for my daughter than me but I really wish we could have made it work I didn't want my child growing up in a broken home. 😕

Under no circumstances do you leave that house or your daughter. Do you have a joint bank account?

He can't just kick you out.

Why haven't you worked since he was home anyway??? A woman should always have something to fall back on.

Contact an attorney Asap. He can't keep your daughter from you. That's up to a judge.

I never got a job because every time I said I wanted to he would talk me out of it saying it was best for me to be home with our daughter. When we first discussed having kids we agreed that I would stay home with them.

I would check on the laws in your state. You are likely entitled to much of the property, in your name or not. Don't let him push you around. He thinks he has the upper hand, he's got another thing coming

You need to immediately take half and place it into an individual account. Then, go meet with an attorney. Don't leave the house and don't leave your daughter alone with your husband. Then you need to start looking for a job. Good luck!

He cannot throw you out of the house, even if it is in his name. If it was purchased when you were married to him, it is considered a marital asset and you are entitled half of the martial assets.  I would get a lawyer and get some advice.

Do not move out if you leave right now he will likely get the house, contact a lawyer tomorrow and see what your options are.
