So long story - I survived many years of abuse of all forms. Every year got worse than the one before, now I can see that. Funny how brainwashing works.
He is heading to prison. I'm trying to figure out how to get divorced and what I legally can ask for and get and what is off limits. We live in Texas and since I started working I was told I make too much for legal aid, but I submitted the divorce paperwork once already and apparently did it wrong. The judge said I have one more chance to do it myself before he requires me to get a lawyer.
So ok - I barely escaped with my life, had to literally replace everything in the house, and they are going to force me to get a lawyer I can't afford. A co-worker told me there are some attorneys who will take on a case like this and put it in the decree that my ex has to pay the attorney fees.
So before I waste a lot of time I was wondering if anyone was familiar with such a thing, how do I phrase that when I ask, and if he's going to prison won't that change the situation enough so no lawyer will mess with it?
Thanks in advance, I'm stuck on a deadend researching on my own.
