Overwhelmed with settlement
ive been separated from my husband over a year but have only just gained the courage to go up against him for my share of the house etc. lawyers keep asking for money, I have hardly any hours at a stressful job, etc etc. I’m just overwhelmed and on my own through this. So hard not to get down about it all.
Hi , welcome
money problems will always cause stress.
does your lawyer know how much you’ll receive from your settlement and if so can he/she continue based on future payment? Can your bank help out?
try all avenues.
