I owned the property for 8 years before I married him. He added $40,000.00 on a second mortgage. His hoarding has prevented the appraiser from seeing the condition of the floors and walls. Resulting in a very low appraisal. How do I address this issue with the judge? He (husband) wants the property. He has only offered me $100.00 a month for 3 years. We have been married for 11. I am disabled. I want to keep my home or at least stay in it until my health improves. Or, perhaps I get a better offer? from him?
You are unlikely to find pro bono representation on a contested divorce. You'd be better off approaching an attorney and offering to make payments under a plan. Your other option is to file a motion for attorney fees in the Court. Tell the magistrate that you cannot hire a lawyer absent an award of attorney fees.
