Customer Question
Hi I’m in NY...

Hi I’m in NY, got divorced 2 years ago and at walk through of division of marital assets in the home there were items missing and brought to my x and her councles attention. After living there for months I’ve realized more things missing and vandalism done. I held back money on division of marital home, which I have, because I knew this was going to probably happen. Now after 4 months of the hold back to be paid I’ve just been served to apear in supreme court for violation of stipulation. Do I go back to my divorce lawyer, who has no interest in me other then billing me, or find a council that focuses on theft, etc.....

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken? Have you filed any papers in NY family court?

For her taking stuff and damage? No my Attorny told me to forget it and let it go. My divorce took almost 3 years to get through, it wasn’t an easy one

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

No I just got served tonight

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

I have custody of my son and waved child support, I’m not sure what else you’d need
