I WAS JUST SERVED WITH A DIVORCE. WHAT DO I DO?
You definitely need good advice at this time. Everything you own, everything you earn, and your right to see your children are now at stake. While you may know a number of people who have been divorced, they are not qualified to give you advice. You need to speak with an experienced divorce lawyer to find out how to protect yourself. You also need to do it right away because you have a very limited amount of time to respond. Otherwise, you may lose your right to make decisions in your case. Things can move pretty quickly in a divorce and you need to protect yourself. Once you do hire a good divorce attorney, you can rely on them to handle all of the technicalities. Prior to that time, however, you are on your own and will be held to the same standard as an attorney. This is a very difficult job for someone with no legal training or experience.
