Greetings. All I can say is that our firm is experienced in divorce related issues. The advice given to your friend is not the same advice that I would give. Since I don’t know the whole story and I have not talked directly to your friend, I can only assume that the advice given has a legal basis to it. When in doubt, find someone specialized in family law! Best of luck.
