Family Law Questions? Ask a Family Lawyer Online.
This attorney knows you don't have one and is trying to give you the shaft! I can't tell you how important it is that you get an attorney. If you don't you're going to be taken to school!
Pre-marital property is NOT marital property and is NOT divisible between the spouses. Unless you have made any of your pre-marital property marital property (by putting her name on it), it stays separate.
The marital assets should be divided equitably. If you want to fight, you need an attorney. If you just want it over and are willing to walk away with what's being offered, then you can proceed alone.
