My husband didn't come home from work Wednesday and I haven't seen him since. I am a stay at home mother of 3 kids. He texts me about every 23 hours (probably so I don't file missing person report.) But what legal action do I need to look into?

The legal action of a good divorce attorney, if you ask me.

I have a few suggestions:

1. Call his mom
2. Call a lawyer
3. Call your boyfriend
4. Call your brother, to kick his ass.

Any of the above should produce some sort of result.
Good Luck

Call all three of the fathers of the kids. Ask if they will send money.

Call your Mom, tell her you're moving home. She'll be thrilled.

Call your boyfriend. Let him know that after you have the 4th kid, you're gonna start picking better men.

Place a personals ad on Craigslist.

Start flirting with your landlord, he will be important to have on your side for the next 2 or 3 months.
alrighty then

I suggest you go to the bank and empty any joint checking and savings account and then find a good attorney. Oh, if you can, cancel any credit cards you have together. Try to leave him hanging like he has his family. Good luck!

I am so sorry to hear this, I can tell you are really in pain. Please disregard the jerky comments about becoming a prostitute.

File a missing person report ASAP. Even if he's a jerk, he is out of his pattern, I hope you have life insurance on him just in case something happened. Hopefully not! Please contact the police right away! How many accidents are there in one day? He could be in a ditch where no one has seen him, or he could be in the hospital as a John Doe.

If something did happen; the longer you wait the more likely you are to be a suspect. Call the police if you have not already, do it now and report him as missing. Whether he has abandoned you (which you have no reason to think he has, because he always texted you at least once a day before) or something happened to him the police need to start a search for him, the sooner the better!

Best of luck to you and your family, I truly hope everything works out and there is a good explanation for why he has been out of contact. Much love to you, and please do not listen to "haters", they don't really believe you are serious or they wouldn't be so cruel.

Did he ever come back home, or is he still calling every 23 hours? Sounds to me like he has another woman on the side, and is blowing smoke up your rear.

He's calling every 23 hours because the jail only allows one call per day.

What are you whining about? The courts here in bible land are always on the side of the woman. You have just won the lottery.

I agree those kinds of men come a dime a dozen and can be found on any street corner. There is nothing special about them
