For Robin: where to start

in response to reader comment: Annulment

Hi Robin,

As far as I know it's a standard practice for lawyers to offer the initial consultation for free. These are often advertised for in local papers. There is also multiple websites dedicated to answering questions about legal matters. Once you learn about your potential options and strategy, there is a good chance you can download a form you need (such as annulment or separation agreement) or just copy it from a friend if possible. I would get a little creative with the letterhead to make it look serious and try my luck sending the document to him. As long as you can locate him and obtain his signature the process should be fairly easy. You can then file it in court yourself (fees will apply). If he contests, at least you will have a good idea about legal services/prices in your area. My advice, go for the lawyer with the most effective strategy. Proving factual reason for the divorce (such as cheating) can be costly and impossible to document. Good luck!
