Customer reply replied 8 years ago
how can I start divorce proceedings and have her move out if we have no assets to divide until the house is sold?
Lawyer: lwpat, Attorney replied 8 years ago
You can start the divorce proceedings and ask the judge to award you sole possession of the house until it sold. However, I doubt that the judge will do so. How long have you been married? What is the amount of equity in the house.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

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.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
