Refuses to pay medical bills.I had no chance off living through liver.I am so called miracle. Should of seen the look on his face when I lived. He bought a sport car and his excuse? Your supposed to be dead. You get off my back ,you put me through snuff. I apologize for sounding off.**** Just please let me know what my chances are of getting decent representation????

Good morning and I am sorry to hear of this. Yes, an attorney may. If there is evidence that the other party is financially able to pay for the others attorney fees, the attorney may take the case, contingent upon this A Judge can order that one party pay the fees of the other party, so the attorney can start the case and work on it and make this demand, when they file, if the other side controls all the money.

no I don't have access to money. One ? Will a lawyer take a divorce Case if I prove there is money, I can't get to. Positive a judge will not think he is a good guy. I am big C, liver transplant, amongst other problems. He is still mad I lived
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
what are my chances? He will get the best. He is ruthless. I don't have to be mean just tell the truth.
Lawyer: LegalKnowledge, Attorney replied 7 months ago

It is at the discretion of the attorney. I saw this because they would have to start working on the case and may have to wait to get paid. If there is a divisional of the marital assets, you should be awarded money and that could be used to pay the attorney in the event the Judge does not order, for some reason, that they pay your attorney fees as the case proceeds.

If he has money and is retaining counsel, the Judge will not allow you to be prejudiced by this and remain unrepresented so if there is money, it can be ordered that you have access to it and can use it for counsel.

A miracle that he was mad about. Broke femur following month and stuck in a wheelchair. He showered me with a hose and that was not the worst he did.
Lawyer: LegalKnowledge, Attorney replied 7 months ago

I am sorry to hear about all this and know it is tough. The Judge should not allow him to control all the money and leave you with nothing and your rights need to be presented and protected during the divorce proceedings. As such, it can be ordered that he pay for your attorney fees and it could be ordered that you have access to the bank accounts and money live off of. He could also be ordered to pay temporary support.

I think he will be nasty and yell at judge. I plan on walking with more than him. I have been gathering for this, since he said he will kill me. Any advise on finding this lawyer?
Lawyer: LegalKnowledge, Attorney replied 7 months ago

You simply want to consult with local divorce attorneys this morning and advise them of the situation. Share with them you are looking for representation but the issue with paying a retainer, as a result of him controlling all the money If you can present proof of all the marital assets, they will see what you would be entitled to and know they will get paid for their services, so they may consider taking the case.
