In fact, the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) say that nearly 44 million people experience a mental illness in any given year and about 10 million adults live with a chronic mental illness.

divorceOne of the most common questions in any divorce or paternity action is “will he/she have to pay my fees?”  The answer is, “maybe.”  The court has wide discretion to order one party to contribute toward the litigation expenses of the other party.
