What can I do if my husband kicked me out and I'm homeless?
Question Details: My husband and I were living together but he kicked me out of the house because I caught him trying to cheat on me. All I have is my dog and my car that has expired tags; I have no family to go to. I did take what was mine and left with nowhere to go but sleep in my car at a cemetery. Can he kick me out? Can I go back until he gives me eviction notice? Can I go to jail?
He can't kick you out: one spouse may not kick another out of the marital home without a court order (such as some sort of protective order) that effect. Go to family court, explain to the clerk what happened; in either family or chancery court (another part of county court), you can file for a court order requiring him to let you back in and barring him from kicking you again. You can also file for divorce at the same time or soon afterwards if you choose.
