Question description

I have been married for 15 years to my dairy farmer husband. I was forced to access the farm acct to pay the family expences several years ago. My husband has closed the accts twice now and cut me off from the money.

We have four children 8, 10, 13, 19

I work at a hospital part time for excellent health etc coverage part time and recieve less than 100 dollars a week for pay after the peemium is paid.

Ive asked for a budget, crying and defeated. I am a very strong individual but refuse to fight over money. The children anb I have been on one family vacation in 9 years.

I help farm when needed, I do all the family chores, I do all the tax filing, I bargain shop to exaughstion.

I told him im going to get a court order for support if he doesnt start giving me a regular dollar amount to work with.

We have no mortgage, he takes care of the farm expences and the electric bill. No car payments. He also is forced to pay the insurance now.

I have to ask and explain every other expence to him every payment thats made and its still not valid to him.

What rights do I have to be an equal partner and to demand use of the money we earn?

I dont want a seperation or divorce. I just need to pay for life. I shouldnt have to ask.

Our total debt for family is aprox 15 to 20 thousand for everything. This would be revolving expences.

Please help .what are my rghts.
