Great Attorney! Got my life back on track.
In December of 2008, myex left the house, kids, bills and animals to live on her own. She took her income as well and did not offer any child support.
I hired an attorney out of Dallas. We agreed to have an attorney help us fill out the paperwork for us and finalize the divorce. Her mother ended up getting involved in and hired an attorney to represent her.
When we first went to court, my ex was allowed all the time on the stand she wanted and when i took the stand, i was being objected by her counsil and sustained by the judge for the most part.
My attorney could not find a way for me to tell my story. My story was plain and simple: She left for an ex con, she left the kids and the house. She abandoned her children yet my attorney could not find a way for me to explain anything without objection after objection.
It's really important to hire a good attorney when you first start going to court to establish a presedent in your argument.
After 3 more hearings in one year and six thousand dollars later, there was no end in sight and afinally decided to fire my attorney after feeling like a hangman everytime i went to court.
Before i hired Justice and White to represent me, my status was as follows: I did not receive any back child support, and i had to pay her 3 months of spousal support. Remember, she left. I took care of the 3 boys for one year while i was being gouged by attorney fees that weren't getting me any where.
The reason i say it's important to start with a good attorney is that once child support and spousal support have been determined, it's hard to go back in later and change the courts decision.
Had i started out on the right step, I shou;d have got spousal support because she's the one that abandoned her children. I should have got back child support for one year as well.
Once i got Justice and white into the picture, my case was settled in 6 months and i could see the difference in the way things were handled.
I highly recommend them to anyone going through a divorce
