I have a very -winded story followed by a series of

I have a very long-winded story followed by a series of questions.My husband (who has Cluster B personality disorder) and I have been separated (not legally) since February of 2015. I kicked him out after discovering a loan that he took out without consulting me. This is the first of MANY over the last ten years. He was in the sub-prime mortgage business in 2007 when the market crashed. It was because of his industry—actually, the company he worked for—that our economy collapsed. When he lost his job, I had a one-month old baby at home and we were living in Florida. We had five properties and he was in charge of ALL of the finances. He wanted to start a new business and I asked him not to touch our 401k (daughter's college fund). By the time I found out what had happened, we had no money. He had spent the entire amount paying payroll on a shady business that failed; it's been downhill ever since. Several years ago, we bought a small house and did a loan modification. He convinced me to use my corporate credit (I had an 850 score and 150K line of credit at the time on a marketing biz I owned) to pay for the renovation; stating that he would pay off when the banks paid us. That never happened. By the time the banks paid us, he was without a job for the 15th time. I filed bankruptcy a week before kicking him out and no longer have this business. Flash forward to today: I have been paying all of our bills through his account (my mortgage, car payment, etc.). My name is ***** ***** ANYTHING. Last weekend, I put the remaining items of his (clothes, etc) in the shed and asked him to remove them. He became enraged and made a scene in front of my daughter who is now 9. It has escalated to a point where he is now canceling all of the credit cards and removing me from everything. I am now a freelance writer and making very little money. I have a nine-year-old daughter and the house is in my name. His mother co-signed, so she is on there as well. The car title was transferred into his name before filing chapter7 so I could keep it and because we are still married (unable to pay for a lawyer and I did not qualify for legal aid since we file jointly). *sigh* So here are my questions: 1) what do i do? How do I protect myself if I don't qualify for legal aid and cannot afford an attorney? 2) what are my rights when it comes to financial support? My daughter has a scolarship in a private school on the other side of town. The commute is 30 min each way and I pick her up at 3pm. he has never taken care of her for more than 24 hours on his own and is threatening to change that. I am just so lost and scared. Any advice is helpful. thanks.

I signed a promissory note for 250k Line of credit. Did not

I signed a promissory note for 250k Line of credit. Did not pay when demanded I do and was threatened with fore closure. The only problem is that i havent seen a single dime of it and there is no record of such draw. The guy says I maxed out the line of credit for 250k. The bills have not been paid and bank in the red by 70001. not employee but "partner"2. Its possible that he had me sign cross collaterilazation for 250K3. He wants to forclose because i didnt start paying him in july but has failed to produce wire transfer, deposit slips or any other form of evidence to prove there was any money ever exchanged. Not only was there never any money but all the bills were unpaid for 3 months, Bank accounts over drawn and lawsuits against me for non payment of debt. Is this possible a case for the attorney generals office? Oh and by the way the lawyer is involved in this because he didnt ask for proof of lawful lien before he filed it.

What are the best ways to find a civil litigation attorney

What are the best ways to find a civil litigation attorney on a contingency basis?And when you have no direct evidence, but there is no other better explanations (therefore if it is not him who did it, or if it is not done this way, then what would it be), what is the best approach to go? - Subpoena to question people and see if they have a reasonable explanation or it is full of contradictions and lies?By law is hard evidence a must; or it will be considered a truth if everything add up together and it looks obvious this way even there is no direct evidence?

I had a case pending and my lawyer died I had paid him 3/4

I had a case pending and my lawyer died I had paid him 3/4 of his fees the person over the estate said I could not get anything back because the money is tied up in probate. We never made it to court and the person over the estate got ahold of another lawyer who is acting as a legal advocate he was under the impression that the case woulde be dropped and when we went to court they are going to put the case off again because they want to charge me with another offence in which he told me that he would not be able to take the case because I could not pay him and I did not qualify for a public defender because I made to much eventhough I spent all my moneyon the first case I am one check away from going under.The person that accused me wants to recant his statement I know for a fact he tried to call the court himself he is a minor 17 almost 18 but he was afraid his father would find out and he's affaid of being hit and the person that he did call did infact call his father who is pressuring him to say the things he said. what am I to do for legal help?

Unique question. I am defending myself in a real estate

Unique question. I am defending myself in a real estate matter. My E&O insurance assigned an attorney who I suspect is not acting in my best interest based on the following. The case was about mold and window leaks originally, but has turned to one e-mail which I provided last may during my clients mediation (which I was not being named as a defendant at that time) which killed the case the buyers had against my client (temporarily). Almost immediately they named me as a defendant, and accused me of forgery of the e-mail.My attorney called me two weeks ago and asked if I would "volunteer" to be deposed. I said yes. He set up the deposition which would have happened Monday the 8th of August. Then subsequently he called and said "we have to get your computer evaluated to prove you didn't forge the e-mail" to which I responded "no problem". My computer is currently being evaluated. Subsequently I found out from the forensic evaluator that he cannot make a dispositive determination on my computer unless he can see the "evidence" the opposing counsel states they have from the other agents computer.There is the rub. I called my attorney, and e-mailed him pleading that he subpoena the other agents computer evaluation for my forensic guy. He said he can't because the case is "stayed" until after my clients arbitration with the buyer, and since I have been subpoenaed to be at my clients arbitration, I must allow myself to be deposed and go to arbitration.So the question is, can I decline being deposed since it was voluntary? Can I decline going to my clients arbitration? The reason being we don't have proof of anything until we evaluate the other agents computer data?
