Good afternoon XXXXX,

I'm Doug, and I'm very sorry to hear of your situation. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today. I am a XXX licensed attorney.

This seems like a very crucial matter for you, and your questions and issues suggest that an in-depth conversation might best suit your needs. If you are interested, for a very nominal charge I can offer you a phone conference. Let me know if you don't want a call and I will be happy continue here with an answer for you.

Either way, whether I call you or not, in order to give you a clear and concise answer, I will need some additional information about the circumstances, please.

1. Where are you presently residing?

2. How long have you resided there?

3. What is your state of residence---if you are traveling with your spouse from state to state?

Thanks in advance,

You are not obligated to accept a call---I thought it would be easier for you given your multidimensional issues here.

You say you will be stationed in XXXXXX, and that your last state was XX. This suggests that you are in neither today. I need to know where you are today in order to give you your options.

I also need to know what state is your legal state of residence.

Under the circumstances I'll opt out. As for the site operation, because I am not an employee I have no control over that. If you want a refund or you want something redacted, you can contact customer service at:(###) ###-####

I am unable to further assist you in this matter, and I am going to opt out of your question and open this up for other professionals.

Your question is being placed back in the question list for other professionals to see, and to respond to. You do not have to stay online for the question to be active. Should another professional pick it up, you should be alerted by email unless you actively disable this feature.

There is no need for you to reply at this time as this may "lock" your question back to me, thus inadvertently delaying other professionals' access to it.

I apologize for any inconvenience and wish you well in your future.
