48 years old. I paid a lawyer in Marshall, and she is not

Customer Question

I'm Gina, 48 years old. I paid a lawyer in Marshall, and she is not working for my side. I got domestically violated. Have to go to court for that and for an ex parte. She is wanting me to drop the ex parte cause my husband doesn't want it on his record. I incurred almost 6,000 in debt in the year and three months we were married, and he is keeping all the stuff that is on my credit cards, and the lawyer only wants to ask him for half. This is not fair, and I'm on a limited income with disability. What can I do? Can I get legal aid? I don't want this lawyer but don't want to lose the $1,120.00 I paid her.

I am truly sorry for this dilemma.

Can you tell me, what was the lawyer hired for? For your pending divorce?
