I am in the beginning of a divorce and my husband has been

Hello, I am in the beginning of a divorce and my husband has been doing all kinds of sneaky things, to move our money all away and saying we have only $200,000, which I will get half, as though I just won the lottery, but the work I have done on four homes now, alone, has earned us hundreds of thousands of dollars and I did absolutely everything, even all the man labor things a man normally would do, so he could grow his business, which he did and is now rich. I want to know if, evenJA: What state is this in?

I have a situation that is not so much a legal one, but am

I have a situation that is not so much a legal one, but am reaching out to an attorney because seems most appropriate place to start. My aunt died in Italy. Person who put himself out as family friend (when we visited) was really a neighbor whom my aunt used to administer her household expenses and medical expenses. The reason why I'm writing you is my sister (67), cousin (63), and his sister (61)--(I am 61 also), responded extremely disagreeably with me, that me getting a lawyer to handle the inheritance was inexcusably inappropriate to them and one cousin took the moral highroad, telling me my deceased brother, mother and father, were watching my actions (I want to tell him I want whatever he's smoking). It turns out that the will is loaded with irregularities and most likely forgeries. I have procured international legal services with offices in NYC & Italy, investigative services of American side (got a good deal with a international criminal priv. inv who is a language expert and former military, NYPD, US Customs Agency), an Italian-side priv. investigator, and a retired Secret Service forensic expert whose specialty in handwriting analysis I've used. The attorneys are putting together the evidence now. It's pointing positively in our favor. But only I and my female cousin (same age) has contributed about 1/8th of the expenses so far. Here's where my question comes in. I've been hurt by the bs I went through when I told relatives not to congratulate Giuseppe etc when he announced he was the universal heir. I received scathing diatribe from male cousin and gentler but outright rejecting response from my sister. They wanted to let Giu handle everything and have a place to go visit (he's already sold the property and adjoining sizeable lot my aunt owned). My relatives don't know anything that has developed except cousin whom I'm speaking to who contributed some money. When I was in Switzerland I demanded money from a trust that we've been notified is going to be distributed. They have followed through with letters on letterhead informing me of the amount and approximate date of distribution at the end of this month. The properties is another matter. But Giuseppe already withdrew 100,000 euros from the trust because in Italy one declared universal heir in Italy trumps all other jurisdictions. So, my question, everything is pointing our way with the investigative results, legal advisement to file civil suit, etc, but I don't know how to approach my relatives to pay for the expenses I've gone through. I want to tell them when they receive their 70,000 euros at end of month to pay me back. I sit down to right, and am so studied and filled with facts, I want to write a book rather than an effective not to pay up on the expenses no matter what their position is, because they'd be getting nothing (potential though of 2-5 hundred thousand euros apiece) if I continue this situation of complex and complicated coordination of services and associated travel expenses. Sorry for the unending verbiage. There's so much more information that I am not getting into, but I've been learning about this thing for 3 years and my thoughts go all over the place. Would you recommend a resource to write a letter that's effective in these situations described above? or, maybe a 3-4 sentence long letter that says all I need to say, because I only have information, not style appropriate to this situation, which is why I contacted you.
