Hi there-

I have a question. My sister is in the process of separating from her husband. Both have been unfaithful and quite frankly they are both a mess right now. Her husband has drug issues and recently went to rehab-he refuses to leave the house, so she signed a lease on an apartment. She doesn't want to uproot the kids-and she really wants to stay in the house and have him go to the apartment. He is refusing.

So-my question. She is convinced that she can't legally make him leave. What happens when someone files for divorce? Can a temporary order be made about the house? While neither are stellar parents, I would think the children's best interest would be best served by him leaving and her and the kids staying in their home. Does anyone know how this might work?

Hi and I'm not sure how that would go, but try posting this on Surviving Divorce & Separation, too,
