As I go through my divorce, in which my soon to be ex husband is better off than me financially and has hired an attorney while I have not for lack of funds I can't help but to wonder why and how any attorney would sign up to represent him? He has a history of abusing me physically, psychologically, and emotionally. He refuses to pay adequate child support despite the fact that he drives a mercedes benz and lives in luxury. I have been the only consistent and primary caregiver in our son's life, yet he now has an attorney representing him and "fighting" to get him child custody and "protecting" his assets at my son's expense. Why would any of you take a case like this? And most of you would! Is money really worth putting aside what is right and just and fighting for the opposite?
