My wife and I mostly get along well. We have two lovely kids. She is very anxious and can be verbally and physically abusive. It was an unexpected event. Last Saturday night ~10:30pm, after I went to bed, she suddenly came up and blamed me "not taking care of my son early enough and going to bed too late". Her work is stressful, she was still working at that time.
Phone call session started

I'm sorry to hear about your situation.

I've received your request for a phone call. Please expect my call within the next 10/15 minutes. Thanks!

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.
