I left Michigan coming up, 6 months ago, from an abusive spouse that is on disability. The spouse admitted himself into the hospital due to heath issues prior to me exiting the relationship. My spouse was physically and mentally abusive and this is documented in my Doctor's office files and the local Women's shelter in Michigan. The spouse was placed in rehab, and now the rehab facility contacted the spouses sister to help place him in assisted living, as I refuse to help because of the trauma I've experienced. I have divorce files filled out and ready to file, and need to know if, and or, how long it would take for any such assisted living facility to come after my earnings, or can they?
