He is on Medicare and they pay for three weeks in the nursing home. I only provided transportation. They had arranged for that at the hospital so I didn't stick around after they got him out of the car. I do not plan to sign anything.
What happens to him after three weeks? - If he is still not able to take care of himself, do I have a responsibility to do that since we are still married? I apologize for not being more clear, I was in a hurry.
I haven't filed for divorce because I have been very sick myself, and just haven't had the money. I had back surgery in 2014, and June 2015 was hospitalized for pneumonia, chronic bronchitis, sepsis, and infection of the bloodstream. I am still recovering from that, and stay tired much of the time. When I was in the ER (June) the doctor told me to call my family in because I wasn't going to make it out alive. I have appplied for disability myself and am waiting on a hearing. I planned to file for divorce as soon as I get the money.
The social worker at the hospital told me that he could apply for Medicaid if he needed to stay longer in the nursing home but since we didn't live together they would take his entire check. She said it did not matter that I had a court order for support, I would not get one red cent.
I guess I could drop him off at his house in three weeks and hope that I get my support. If I don't get it, we don't eat and won't have money to pay utilities.
I did call my attorney last week and he is out of town until next week so I can't find out anything until then. I want to use the same one who handled my support case because he knows everything that is going on.
