Customer Question
I was married in...

I was married in Fiji to a Fijian citizen on November 12 2013. We separated on March 6 2015. Do I have to go to Fiji to lodge the divorce papers? Also we have a child. Can I apply for a divorce with custody arrangements?

Lawyer's Assistant: The Lawyer will need to help you with this. Have you consulted a lawyer yet?

No not yet.

Lawyer's Assistant: Please tell me everything you can about this issue so the Lawyer can help you best. Is there anything else important you think the Lawyer should know?

He is not paying child support but other than that nothing that I can think of.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
