How much is this going to cost me i am a single mum of 5 kids

Lawyer's Assistant: It can cost anywhere from $10 to $100, depending on the type of issue and how much of the Lawyer's time your question is expected to take (how complex and lengthy an answer you require).

how much is that seriously i have only $100 in bank and i cant believe i am doing this i cant afford it as it is
Solicitor: John Melis, Lawyer replied 7 months ago

you are entitled to a proper settlement financially and you should not let your partner take what is also yours away.

the key point for your is to get the information to help.

we can chat here if you want, but as you have limited time, talking on the phone will be quicker and the reason i extended a special offer to you if you prefer ?

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.
