Customer Question
Ny divorce was final...

Ny divorce was final Dept 11, 2017. My wife owes me money and some personal property left at the house. She has been unwilling to pay me the money and coordinate a time for me to pick up the belongings. I feel I need to take some legal action to motivate her to wrap this up. What are my options.

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

Arizona

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

No. I am trying to figure out what type of lawyer I need to talk to.

You mention that our ex-wife owes you money and you requested to retrieve some personl property that is your own from the house but she is not providing either to you. Was there a court order or a separation agreement addressing either one of these issued? In other words, is there anything in writing that she owes you money or that the property you want to retrieve is your property?

I just want to know what type of attorney I should contact to start the legal action.
Lawyer: DamienJD, Attorney replied 8 months ago

Okay. That is good. You would want a matrimonial attorney. Do you have a further question?

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.
