Im finally looking up pro bono divorce attys for myself. This is ridiculous. My stbx wants to get away with murder. really, i am haggling with someone who is very cunning and shrewd. i have no idea what i can ask for thru the law and i am not good at reading all that legal mumbo jumbo and trying to understand it on my own. It is simply not my forte. and i dont want to mess myself over. I was told by an atty of a friend that there arent any in town but i am looking online and there are pro bono divorce laywers in the city. I am going with the attitude of, "when there is a will there is a way." and i am letting at least 3 other older women's voices resound in my head to make sure i get help with this b/c they knew my stbx's personality and how he only looks out for #1. for example, I can ask for lifelong alimony and even if i can only get it for a certain amt of time there doesnt seem to be a set amt we have to settle on, not like with the kids cs amts. i made a proposal and he doesnt want to go with it. he also wont give me a tad more in joint legal custody. I need help!
I will let y'all know how it goes.
