Well, now my husband has filed a motion to have me "removed" from the house, in other words, a restraining order saying I cannot live here. Ironically, this is the house that my family has financed. So, I was served w/ this on Wednesday and the hearing is pushed out until next Tuesday. Husband says he will drop everything if I check myself into treatment. BUT... he doesn't want to pay for treatment, and he doesn't want to pay me any spousal support either. So, if the Judge decides I shouldn't live here, then I am out on the street with no money. There is one treatment program my insurance will pay for, but its at a hospital, and they told me that usually they have you stay there inpatient for 3 weeks or so, then you do outpatient (as we all know, insurance doesn't want to pay for those beds for 60 or 90 days). I totally feel like I am being taken advantage of!! Yes, I do need to deal with my drinking issues. I go to AA and I am trying hard to make changes. Kicking me out of the house isn't going to make recovery any easier. I am so angry that he is able to somehow gain the upper hand in the marital situation, b/c I have alcoholism. If I had MS or Cancer or HIV would he be able to strip me of my rights so easily?? He is trying to take away my daughter, have me removed from my home, and is also trying to get out of paying me any type of spousal support - all on the grounds that I am an alcoholic. Is this even near fair and normal?? I am so confused, angry, frustrated, depressed, and I just feel like I can't do anything to help myself. My family law attorney is not being aggressive, and I don't have the money to switch attorneys - although I talked to a real bull-dog attorney yesterday, but she wants $20K retainer to represent me. HELP ? !! ? What do I do now?
