I need help with a divorce dissolution

Lawyer's Assistant: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

Minnesota

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?

I had an attorney, which she withdrew, because I could not afford to pay her any longer and wanted to pursue legal aid.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I have a court conference coming up October 4th.

The reason I separated from my husband is because he told me he was changing the locks on our home. The home was not in my name, however there was no court order document that stated it as pre marital or that I was to be removed. He also has a 401k that he has only in his name and claims it as a premarital asset. However, he cashed it out before we were married and the balance in there at this time was gained during our marriage.

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.
