Lynn Haven, FL asked in Divorce for Florida

Q: I have utilized Legal Services and a Legal Clinic in responding to a Dissolution of Marriage petition that my husband

Served on me 3/11/13. I had to respond to the petition NLT 4/1/13.Upon receiving info that I was not aware of, I based my answers to the petition without the full knowledge of certain issues. I have a DV injunction against him which was granted until 1/15/14. I do not want to go into a hearing with him pro se. I am very afraid of him. I have multiple disabilities and need further legal advice. I receive a Federal Government Disability Annuity monthly. It is not enough to cover the expenses of attaining a lawyer. What are my options?
