I need legal advice. Lived with a man for 17 years. He takes the keys so I can't work. He's abusive, verbally. I need out.?

He refuses to give me money to get out and won't let me go on job interviews. I'm 60 and need a normal life. What can I do, if anything. The yelling and throwing things is out of control. I can no longer even wear what I want. I'm in Texas.

    If your name is on the deed/lease you can always have the locks changed then give him a new key. But under the circumstances it would probably be best for you to move out and leave this guy to his own devices.

    You pack a case and get out, go to a women's refuge, tell the poice about him, move a long way away, get a job, get friends and family to help you, just shake yourself, and do something about your life, it will be hard, but you have to do it, don't you?

      If I didn't have pets I would. Plus all the furniture in the house is mine and I know it'll be on the curb. His boat has my car blocked in the garage. If I take off in one of his cars I know he'll swear it's stolen, even though I'm on the insurance. I've seen the real him and it's evil.

    it is called mental and physical abuse

    call the cops and report him

    say that if they don't come and save you , you will not be responsible when he is shot

      This is his house. I'd be the one put out. That's the only reason I've not called 911. He's never hit me, but he's extremely verbally abusive. There's no name in the book I've not been called.

      He owns the house. I figure i'd be the one on the street. He has all the money and just cut my credit card off.
