Family Law

questions & answers

Question: My husband and I have been married 45 years. 4 years ago my step-daughter took him to live with her in Las Cruces, NM. She has isolated him from me, I haven't spoken to him for 3 1/2 years. Recently, she has been taking the $1200 per month that goes directly into an account set up for me. My husband's name is on it but I have received this money for 5 years because this was our arrangement. I think he is not capable of making his own decisions and she is exploiting him. She or someone cleared out his CDs of $50,000. Is there any legal action I can take to cover myself?

Answer: Since this situation involves multiple states as well as several family disputes, a Family Law attorney should be consulted in order to give you the appropriate analysis and course of action regarding these issues.
