I was served divorce papers last Friday and don't know what to do. I cannot afford an attorney as my husband controls all the money and has paid all the bills since 2005. He took care of everything but now he wants out.
I have a business in the home which an addition was built for and it would not be easy to find another home set up like this for my business. I sell on ebay and have a huge office to process items and another very large room with all the merchandise. I don't want to lose the house as that would be an extreme hardship for me.
What should I do? Should I show up at the first court date and explain the situation?
