A: I am sorry to hear that you are going through this difficult situation in your life. It is very important that you find an attorney with whom you can go into detail about this question given the different factors involved. It would not be wise to give a simple answer to such a very complicated and serious matter. Again, I encourage to speak to an attorney one-on-one.
