Greetings. First, if you do not have the funds to pay for an attorney, your ex may not care about your leverage…since all negotiations with him will be empty threats. Depending on your separation agreement, you may have a lot of negotiating power. I would suggest that you have an attorney, over the telephone or in person, advise you on the terms of your separation agreement and what negotiating points you have. Best of luck.
