Q: My ex filed for divorce and supposedly I was served by email and I never received!! Now it’s final? Less than 90 days?
He stated he didn’t know how to contact me but that was not true! He just chose to block me because I wouldn’t sign blank documents. I am disabled now homeless, no vehicle, nothing left he has thrown away my personal property!
A: Depending upon the particular facts of your case, you should file either a motion for new trial, notice of appeal, notice of restricted appeal, or bill of review. You should consult a lawyer right away who practices in the area of appellate law. Ask for them to describe their experience with restricted appeals and bills of review. These are less common types of proceedings with very specific requirements that should not be attempted by novices or amateurs.
