Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am an attorney with Just Answer. I'm so sorry to hear about your situation.
Here is my recommendation for you in this situation and it won't even require you to have a lawyer.
Ok, so what you can do is you can file for spousal support. In fact, most people never hire lawyers at all for these situations.
In fact, if you click here, you can fill out this form and file it with the FL court.
I certainly understand the separation part. But, even if you're married, you can get support.
The best part is that you absolutely don't need a lawyer to file for divorce and you don't need to be divorced to request support.
One more thing, in my experience, when you go to the courthouse, the clerk will usually help you identify the correct forms to fill out. The information will then go to a judge, who then will make a judgment on your request. You may have a hearing where you can explain that you were abused and that you are on a limited budget, but it should help.
