We live separately now and my soon-to-be ex doesn't

Customer Question
We live separately now...

We live separately now and my soon-to-be ex doesn't contribute any money to the bills, leaving me in a financial crisis. I have been a stay at home mom for 8 years and only have a $735.00-dollar income from our disabled daughter SSI. He is driving the family car he took and I have no way to get around to do the things me and the 5 children must get done. He refuses to pay, refuses to return the car to me, and refuses to respond to any of my calls. What can I do? I don't have funds to pay for another month.

Lawyer's Assistant: What state is this in? And how old is the car?

Florida 2014 kia sorento

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

Yes we filed for divorce and I tried to file a temporary support order but it was denied.

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

That's about it

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.
