Good afternoon Carol,

I'm Doug, and I'm sorry to hear of the confusion. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today. In order to give you a clear and concise answer, I will need some additional information about the circumstances, please.

1. Are you presently married?

2. How may years were you married to your ex?

3. What is your present age?

Doug
