Cash for Keys Ohio - Why is our home lawyer telling me I can't file for a divorce while waiting for the bank to give us a move out date and settlement money. Also, we have been waiting for 3 months for a move out date and the bank still has not given it to our lawyer but we still have to make monthly payments to the lawyer?
I think your question might more properly be listed in the debt settlement practice area since it does not appear to be a divorce issue as much as its a creditor/debtor issue if you are quoting your attorney correctly. Why don't you ask your attorney why you can't file at this time?
