Customer reply replied 8 years ago
No, my husband told me he would file for divorce next week. I want to stop him, because he wants to marry an illegal person for them to get a green card, and other damaging factors.
Lawyer: lwpat, Attorney replied 8 years ago
You cannot stop your current spouse from filing for a divorce. You will have the opportunity to reply to the complaint but he can seek a divorce and you cannot stop that.

My Expert was fast and seemed to have the answer to my taser question at the tips of her fingers. Communication was excellent. I left feeling confident in her answer.

Three H.Houston, TX

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.
