    Go to the courthouse and ask for an application for chikd and spousal support. Collect all the household bills and you pay stubs for the day of court. You should be able to easily explain your needs. If he shows up with a lawyer on the day of the hearing, ask the judge to have him give you at least $5000 so you can retain an attorney as well. Good luck.

    Yolanda’s Answer

    You should consult with a personal injury attorney. Not only are you entitled to have your medical bills paid for, but you may be entitled to monetary compensation for your pain, suffering and any permanent scars. An attorney will take your case on contingency, so you do not have to pay him/her out of your pocket.
