Family Law Questions? Ask a Family Lawyer Online.
If you have not done so already,I would suggest that you make an appointment with an experienced local family attorney to have all of your questions answered. Write the questions out in advance so you do not forget any of them. It should not be expensive to have this sort of legal consultation, but ask about the fee in advance to be sure. Many law firms will provide free or low cost initial consultations, but only if you ask for them in advance.
Once you understand your overall options, if you decide to hire an attorney to do it you could also call around to get different estimates of cost, including hopefully some who will do it for a flat fee. Then you can decide how best to proceed.
