i'm posting to help my girlfriend. her dh is doing coke all of a sudden. He's had some loss (mom died a few weeks ago, friend dying), but he's started doing coke and lying and not coming home and not talking to the kids...etc, etc. So we were talking about what she needs to do to protect herself and the kids. I told her to open her own bank account and get all her money out before it's used for coke. But what else? If she changes the locks, is there any way to legally protect her and the kids from him coming in, if they are still married? Any other suggestions?


Mom to 11 y.o. lawyer, 9 y.o. actor, and 4 y.o. pilot. I believe 'em on those, too!

sounds as though she may need to file for a legal separation if she is not already contemplating divorce because she needs legal footing to deny him entry into the home and other limits that she may need to begin setting.
