My husband and I have been trying to apply for health

Customer Question
My husband and I...

My husband and I have been trying to apply for health insurance and have discovered that our marriage is not legal. With a baby on the way we are both very frantic in getting not only our marriage legalized but get medical insurance for our family. I need to know what our options are and how we push this through before the first of the new year.

Lawyer's Assistant: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

North Carolina

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

No found out today after trying to find a record to marriage

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

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.
