Question #88

 My wife and I were married about four months ago. Our relationship has deteriorated drastically. She has threatened my life and threatened to “destroy me.” I have no hard evidence of either of those. Though the police did arrive to help me leave the house once. I have made it clear that I want out of the relationship, but she refuses to leave. Only my name is on the rental lease. Some of the bills are in her name. I cannot afford to continue paying my current rent and get another place for myself. What are my options? If I file for a divorce, who has to move? I am in New York City. What support will I be liable for considering the short time we have been married?

Question #183

My husband and I have been together for six and a half years. We have a four-year-old child. He has a home that he purchased in NY in which we reside. We now live in NJ in a home that’s in his name. We got married in June of this year, and everything seems to have gone downhill from that moment. My question to you is, am I entitled to either of the homes if we were to divorce now even though we’ve been together for years but only married for months? Please answer my question as soon as possible. Thank you for your time.
