As seen on TV ? I am not attorney, I need a attorney! Sounds to me you want to sit
in a chair and count how times you make 39 bucks. What good would advise do for me
a non attorney Truck driver. If anybody there needs to know how to build a garage, give me a call and
I will give you advice For 39$. And if you want it to last a week 149$ and you may have a
chance for a free clapper!!
You can represent yourself in a divorce suit if you know what you're doing. I would suggest going to speak with an attorney in person and discuss your case. It's better to spend some money to get quality representation to protect your interests than to pay for it later. If you want the cheapest keep in mind you get what you pay for. As for the $39 svc through AVVO, I do not know what it entails, but suspect it is personal advice on your case rather than the free advice you are seeking online from the masses. You are probably not going to solve your problems online, and no you ate not going to learn how to 'litigate' with advice. It's a skill and an art and much like the "as seen on TV" do not try this at home.
Unfortunately, lawyers are not mind readers.
Also, many of us who answer questions have no idea what services AVVO provides for $39 or any other amount.
You apparently have a question about divorce decree enforcement but your question does not give a clue as to what you want enforced.
You mentioned Fidelity. This suggests you may be seeking help with a QDRO. However, your problem is not clearly laid out.
If you want a competently drawn QDRO you will pay about $500. If Fidelity is doing something that they should not, your costs will probably start at about $2000 and go up, depending on the nature of the problem.
Bottom line, if this sounds like something that the AVVO service will help, then proceed ahead. If it does not, you may want to seek help from a lawyer with experience in this field.

I am licensed to practice law in Michigan and Virginia and regularly handle cases of this sort. My answering your question does not establish an attorney-client relationship. You should consult a lawyer so you can tell the lawyer the entire situation and get legal advice that is precisely tailored to your case.
I do not have a clue what point you are seeking to make, other than you need an attorney and understand representation will be more than $39.
I cannot comment on the first as there are not details by can commend you in concluding the second. It is going to cost much more than $39 to engage counsel.
To the PROSPECTIVE client, please call with more details, and for an appointment. My PRELIMINARY answer to your question(s) is for general purposes and based upon the information you have conveyed. It is based on such limited information that it is a general answer, and should not be relied upon as a reason for your action or inaction. My response does NOT establish an attorney-client relationship and such may only be established by mutual agreement, and the signing of a written retainer agreement, which will generally require payment for our services, as this is what we do for a living and, just like you, we must get paid for our work.
Avvo answers are for general information purposes only, and are not substitutes for substantive, comprehensive legal advice. Having said that, however, you are legally allowed to represent yourself in any kind of case, including a divorce. If you are resolved to do this yourself, you would do well to read your state's statutory provisions on divorce, which can be found on your legislature's website; also, before you file anything, make a visit to your local family court and ask for all the forms you will need to get started. The courthouse clerks will not be able to give you legal advice, but they can clear up many technical aspects of filing and maintaining a divorce case on the local docket. Otherwise, you would need to schedule a consultation with a local divorce and family law attorney, for the best guidance.
