Hello, I need some help please. I had to move to Oregon when I got sick and lost my job. Now that I am transient, my husband files for child support and divorce in North Carolina.
We have been separated for 11 years and there is a Mediated Consent Order on file in NC. He has not let me see my children in over NINE years, kept ALL my personal property and there has been no separation of marital assets.
I need an attorney to represent me in court, because I have no way to travel to NC from Oregon. I called Legal Aid in North Carolina and they would not help me. I went to Legal Aid in Oregon whose attorney would not even talk to me. I have written the Bar in both states, but they were no help either. I even wrote the attorney generals of NC, OR and USA and contacted dozens of attorneys and firms, but no one will help.
I am a full time college student with no income. My children have grown up without their mother, and I without them. I'm trying to get visitation, modification of support, joint custody, return of property, equitable distribution, Parental Alienation of Affection, Criminal Conversation, divorce, attorneys fees, court costs, travel expenses, and alimony.
No one can give my daughters and I back all the years we have lost, but you could make a difference with a little compassion and help us now and for the future.
The Judge dismissed his divorce, but now he hired an attorney and filed again. I have no clue what to do or who to turn to for help. I have read the court procedures and rules and do not understand any of it. Now he and his attorney are lying to the Court that we are not even married and I have no way to fight him, that I be barred by laches when he has waited eleven years to even file. I have filed response and counterclaim by mail to the NC Court, I do not know what to do next after I received a Motion for dismissal of all my counterclaims. I even filed a greiveance against the attorney for lying to the judge with the NC State Bar.
Isn't there a single person in America that will help anyone anymore? How can a husband get away with taking away your children, keeping all your personal property that you ever owned your entire life and flat out lie to a Judge in the Court system? Doesn't anyone care about preventing something that could possibly happen to them too anymore? One day you may loose your job and not have any money, do you think anyone will help you either when you are not willing to help out another? Why is our court system just about who has money anymore?
Can you point me in the right direction or do you know anyone that can help me?
