Hello,

Opening someone else's mail without their consent is a federal crime. I would strongly recommend you not do that.

If your marriage ends in a divorce, as a former spouse, you may be eligible for benefits based on your husband's work earnings if all of the following are true.

  • The marriage lasted at least ten years.
  • You are at least 62 years old.
  • You did not remarry, and
  • You can’t get a benefit based on your earnings record in an amount higher than or equal to your husband's earning record..

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.
