Customer Question
I am legally married...

I am legally married to a man that I have not seen in 22 years. He is remarried right now since 2012. But has been married to at least 3 other women since we split in 1995. I have been in contact with his current wife through facebook. She says that he doesn't know me. But told me to send the paperwork to them. I have received the certified mail return slip that shows they signed for it on September 16th. I am trying to figure out what my next move is. I have not received a signed waiver

Lawyer's Assistant: Family law varies by state. What state are you in?

Oklahoma

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?

No. I cannot afford an attorney at this time.

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

I need to know what I can do now to expedite this issue.

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.
