My husband has told me he will be filing for divorce this week. He makes a six figure income while I make significantly less and have little money of my own or separately to retain an attorney. We have a 12 week old and are to close on a house in two weeks that we building. He has said that I need to make other living arrangements since he will keep the house after the divorce. I do not have the salary to make the payments. I now find myself in a very stressful situation of being displaced with a teenage daughter and newborn son.
Your attorney can ask that your husband provide funds for your representation. Also the Collin County Bar Association may refer you to someone.
Go speak with an experienced family law attorney ASAP. You are in a better position than you think. He can be made to pay your interim attorney's fees and child support if you get custody and spousal support if he makes enough money.
