Customer Question
I went through a divorce...
I went through a divorce while working in Afghanistan, I told the judge what I would agree to in the divorce, but my lawyer wrote the agreement without adhering to my statements and wishes. I believe she sided with my wife and purposely misrepresented me, this was four years ago and now I am having problems. My main agreement was my ex wife could keep the house loan under both our names for three years, as long as she was making payments. It has been four years and she has missed payments many times, my credit rating is getting worse and worse, my lawyer, simply put on the agreement she could keep the house loan in my name as long as she was making the payments. I said 3 years in court, she changed it and did not send me the papers to see she did that for a year. What can I do now?

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.
