Based on the information that you have provided here, your request for $200,000.00 in cash may not be realistic if your husband does not have a way to quickly liquidate the marital assets and give you the cash and also pay for your Attorney's fees. You would to make discovery requests as to marital assets to know exactly about the value of the marital assets and then determine whether it is reasonable for you to make a demand for the $200.000.00 cash and payment of your Attorney's fees.

Best wishes,

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.

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.
