No specific course of action is proposed herein, and no attorney-client relationship or privilege is formed by speaking to an expert on this site. By continuing, you confirm that you understand and agree to these terms.

I am sorry to hear about this situation. "What can I do" is a very open-ended question. What exactly are you asking here? For example:

-Can I find any pro bono help?

-How is custody going to be decided - what factors are used?

-Can I request temporary custody/visitation?

-How are marital assets divided?


This is not an answer, but an information request. I need this information to answer your question. Please reply, so I can answer your question. Thank you in advance.
