I have been married for 55 years but physically separated since December of 2018. My husband remains in our fully-owned home in North Las Vegas, NV, while I have purchased a home in Aiea, HI. He is my beneficiary and dependent for my state retirement and EUTF systems, ie, in addition to Medicare, he is covered under my medical insurance plan. All his bills in LV are joint, with the primary person being me. The house in LV is jointly owned, and the credit cards he uses are under his and my name.
Because of all the financial connections, I have been reluctant to pursue legal ways to separate from him, but now, he has been scammed out of cash he had in his bank account, and I fear for my financial stability if I stay connected to him. However, before I take any actions that I know will upset him emotionally, I'd like to know my facts and consequences.
Any information would be appreciated! Thank you.
