Customer Question
I am on disability...

I am on disability And I want to divorce my husband. I am 60 yrs. old and not sure if I'm registered or not with Legal aid of Hudson Valley in White Plains NY? I spoke to them on January 21, 2018 and they said, wait 6 months and call back to speak to a Lawyer.

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

New York

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

Reported I think, when I spoke to the Legal Aide society in Hudson Valley, in White Plains, NY on January 21, 2018

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

I'm looking to live in an Assisted Living Facility, pet friendly. My income is low, especially since I'm still married.

I'm going to see a Lawyer, Monday. The first visit is free. Being on disability I hope he does not charge much. He is an hour or so away. They told me, that they never heard you have to wait 6 months in New York for a divorce, well the woman who set up the appointment. So, that's the situation. I'm trying to save some money, but I don't have much. Just need someone to bounce this stuff off of.

I am trying to get into an Assisted Living, I have many physical problems, I don't mind being the youngest there with pets. My Medicaid should come through end of March Early April. Do assisted living places take Medicaid at first?

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.
