First of all, anything that you inherited that you did not put into joint names will remain yours as separate property even if you inherited after the marriage
And to answer your question about Legal Aid, there are guidelines and they are as follows
If you have 1 child the salary cannot exceed $1128 a month.
We do not have any children in our marriage. My daughter never lived with us except to help me with Dad< she is 36. My step son is now 21 so I raised him. His Mom was abusive so he had many problems with anger. In counseling most of his young life. Never saw his Mom. So I need to know what it is with no children!
Then no, you will not qualify for the Legal Aid. That amount of $1128 is the lowest you would be allowed to qualify - it goes up not down based on the number of children So for a single person that means you cannot earn more than $13,538 a year. Additionally, legal aid is not going to be available if there are no children involved. If you cannot afford a private attorney then I suggest you will want to try to proceed on your own.
