I'm new here. I'm still tempted to try an online or DIY divorce, because I'm scared to death of the financial fallout. But all advice is against that, and I'm starting to research lawyers. Does anyone here have some recommendations for a good lawyer who will look out for my rights and not charge so much I'll be paying it off forever?
FWIW, I'm dealing with someone who is an absolute charmer, but fits to a T the profile of emotional, verbal, and psychological abuser. He is a master liar. He has said he'll give me a divorce, and when we were separated in the past, he willingly gave me half his income, but whether he'll suddenly turn mean, I have no idea. I already have concerns about where all our money is going, as he seems to spend all he earns each month, and as far as I can figure out, he earns quite a bit more than bills account for.
