Can i get some advice if there is any to give?

I am filing for divorce after almost 10 yrs because my husband has been unfaithful....even after we had decided to work it out he was with this girl less than two weeks ago...I haven't worked in 5 years because I've stayed home with our girls...almost 5 and 17 months....just wondering should I let a lawyer handle it better to arrange some things outside of a lawyer...Im just so confused.....

  • Many lawyers offer free consultations. Take advantage of that, but most likely you'llneed to enter into a financial arrangement with one.

  • Sometimes it can be handled without a lawyer (mine was), but given that you've been out of work for so long, you'll probably want to get alimony until you can get back on your feet financially, so I think you'd be better off with a lawyer so you can get the most out of that.

    Sorry he's done this to you, and good luck!
