The thought of contacting a lawyer made her sick. To live through her abusive marriage was hard enough. Would she have to bare all the details of her twisted reality to someone…and pay them for it? Where would she get the money for that, especially since her husband was hiding his paychecks?
Is your story anything like this?
I get the hesitation. The fear, the dread, and disgust. Bringing somebody else into your messy life is humiliating. But (and this is a really big but(t)), there are so many really important reasons to contact a lawyer when you’re in an abusive marriage. Because protecting yourself from financial abuse isn’t easy or simple, and it takes someone who knows what they’re doing.
Which leads us to questions. You have so many questions.
So I invited a lawyer who’s at the top of her game to answer the questions women just like you want (and need) answered.
Because this knowledge is worth its weight in gold. And your protection is worth even more than that.
