Pearl, I'm Ivy. Are you familiar with CA divorce law and

Hi Pearl, I'm Ivy. Are you familiar with CA divorce law and real estate law? I was married in 1995, we purchased a home in 2007. My name is ***** ***** the title. We divorced in 2010, he filed stating "no property to split". I signed under duress. I attempted to retain a lawyer that said my statute of limitations had lapsed. That didn't make sense to me. I was under the impression with real estate law I have 10yrs from the divorce to petition. I believe once he found out my ex was a state patrolman he decided not to help me any further. What are my rights?JA: No, just the one happy marriage. OK. The Family Lawyer will need to help you with this. Have you consulted a lawyer yet?Customer: Are you a real person or is this some generated reply? I just said I consulted a lawyer.JA: I'm an assistant to the Family Lawyer. I work with them to help customers like you.Customer: I already mentioned I had previously consulted with a lawyer. I also stated what his reply was. I am confused by your response.JA: Is there anything else the Family Lawyer should be aware of?Customer: He is remarried, but had the affair before we were divorced.JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Family Lawyer about your situation and then connect you two.
