Customer Question
Hi, I need help...

Hi, I need help knowing what steps I should take in a property division situation. I was awarded a boat and trailer in a divorce, my ex sold the boat and trailer without my or the court's knowledge. I have in my possession a trailer that was awarded to her. She is now trying to obtain that trailer behind my back. I have proof she disobeyed the court order regarding the trailer and boat awarded to me and need to know if I can withhold the trailer from her until a contempt of court hearing can be filed against her for her disposal of assets belonging to me.

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

Wisconsin

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

I have reached out to an attorney, but it is a vary time sensitive matter. And i need an answer asap

I want to make sure I understand...I understand that she is is in contempt (for selling the boat and trailer that was to be given to you). You want to know if this would allow you to disobey the decree?

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.
