last year my huband and I separated and decided to get a divorce. I could not afford an attorney so we decided to use the one that he hired. Little did I know that he did not specify that it needed to be complete mediation because I was not educated on the matter I let her draw up all of the paperwork. I didn't really feel comfortable signing it at first but felt forced. About 3 or 4 months later I actually met this attorney, and found out that they were having an affair before we had even separated. What can I do to modify the decree?JA: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: INJA: Have you talked to a laywer yet?Customer: NoJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I can't think of anything

This question is for a woman lawyer only: We live in. My

This question is for a woman lawyer only: We live in Virginia. My husband and I are divorcing after 23 years. He has fully supported me financially for the entire marriage. I receive only 600.00 per month from Social Security. He receives approximately 1,500.00 from Social Security and about 1,000.00 from military retirement. He will also receive an inheritance from his mother when she dies (She is now 90 years old). He wants to have an uncontested divorce and give me nothing. I am a senior citizen and past working age. Am I entitled to receive any portion of his income and inheritance? What are my rights?
