On March 27, 1992, I received notice to appear in Richomond Va courts to protect my interest in my divoce, I contacted local lawyer to request to reschedule apprearnce for 4/24/92, because I was in Puerto Rico at the time, and I did not have funds to appear on date requeted. I also explained that I had three children I needed to take with me. I never received any notice and by Nov 9, 92 a final divoce decree was put into place, signed on Nov 16,92, and mailed to me in Puerto Rico and forward papers to me in Norfolk Va another city 1hr away. I went to a local lawyer to seek advise and was asked if I had any money, I said no, and suggested I go to richmond and seek lawyer there for assistance. I was setting in Norfolk VA and I had no money to do that. I was emotionally stress.
