LAV Client TestimonialI had an ongoing case with an ex-partner with whom I’d had twin daughters. He was able to financially “out do” me and string me along for years within the legal system. I was able to keep up about the first 2 years, but rapidly depleted my savings and any access to additional funds.

It was like I was in hell for the next four years – humiliated in court. I felt uncomfortable and unheard every step of the way. I was caught in an emotional hurricane and that moment when I got the call that I was approved for this program, years hit the floor and I felt like I took the first calm breath of relief I’ve had in a long attorney was there for me and actually listened to me. I understood that this didn’t mean I would get everything my way. but, it did mean that I wasn’t alone anymore. that was all I needed – a voice and support.

This program is without a doubt one of the most important programs I’ve ever heard of or been a part of in my life. It’s a lifeline for people who are in similar situations, and I’m so thankful for what it’s given to me and my family! I’m thankful for the existence of the LAV program and everyone who plays a role in creating this fully functional, amazing program.
