    You should contact a local attorney to review the documents you prepared on legal zoom. If you wrote a property settlement agreement, it should be reviewed before you sign it.

    The specific language of the document will dictate whether it is an enforceable waiver of support. For example, under the agreement, did you receive something such as a promise or money in exchange for the waiver of support? Your best bet is to take a copy of the agreement to an attorney for review. Many divorce lawyers offer free initial consultations.

    Unfortunately, the Court will not assign an attorney to you. However, you may qualify for free legal representaion by Legal Aid of Southeast Pennsylvania or the Access to Justice Program of the Chester County Bar Association. Contact Legal Aid by calling its intake line at 877-429-5994. If you do not qualify for Legal Aid, but you qualify for Access to Justice, then Legal Aid will refer you to the Access to Justice Program.

    It is unlikely that he intends to arrest you. In Pennsylvania, Constables serve papers, in addition to their other duties. He will likely serve you with a notice, as he indicated. Or he may serve you with original process (a complaint) in a civil action.
