    The attorney general can serve him by mail at the P.O. Box address you have for him, or if you want personal service hire a process server.

Perhaps hiring a private attorney would be of more help.

    There is no doubt you have a case for maintenance. In such a case the duration of maintenance, the amount of maintenance, termination events and reviewability and modification are all part of what needs to be established. The over all assets of the marriage is also a factor in maintenance so speak with an expirenced attorney who can help you get the fresh start that you want with the money you need to make it work.

    Yes you can ask for that relief but the first thing her attorney will check is if you are making more $ than last time. So do the math first so you don't win on dimes and lose on dollars.

    Yes, you need to hire your own attorney to present your case to the court. Do not delay or the order may be final. If you do hire an attorney you should have your day in court.
