Customer Question
I have a couple...

I have a couple of questions regarding my ex wife and children.

Lawyer's Assistant: Family law varies by state. What state are you in?

Victoria

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?

I have a while ago but my ex is being stubborn and I can't afford to see my solicitor or take my ex to court

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I believe my ex is on drugs. I have smelt marijuana smoke a couple of times when I've been to pick up my kid de. Also she is in possession of a car that is unregistered now but has been registered in my name she is claiming it is hers. I'm a bit confused and frustrated

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.
