Thank you for using JustAnswer.

I'm sorry to hear about your situation. Is your spouse in agreement with all issues? (Custody, support, property distribution, alimony, etc...)?

By the way, you may get a phone call offer. This is system generated, and at this point I don't know enough about your situation to know if I can assist you. Decline the offer if it comes up and we can continue in this chat function.
