Customer Question
My ex-husband can't find...

My ex-husband can't find the papers necessary for me to get the 5 certificates of occupancy so I can sell the house, ... the house is in my name

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

NY

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken so far?

Moved out of the house with my daughter into an apartment, since he has his business at the old house

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

He planned to pay half the current mortgage & has not done so, and just notified me that he can't afford to do so and that the house will be going into foreclosure

Lawyer's Assistant: When we are ready I'll take you to the appropriate web page.

He has taken a $600,000 loan against the house without my signature.

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.

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.
