I am stuck, I fear! My spouse never gives me cash, so I rely on one credit card. He always gets the bill before I can, so he would know if I went to a lawyer.
I can relate to ^^^^this!
Look into a post office box and have all your mail sent to the box. Keep all of your personal records in a bank's safe deposit box if you can afford it or see if there is some one you trust that can hold to the records/papers for you.
Most lawyers have free initial consultations. I called one lawyer back in 2010 (I was hoping to be working by now) and when I made the appointment they asked my name. I asked them if I could just give them my first name and hold off on my last name until the day of the appointment and they were fine with that. I also asked that they not call the house because I wasn't sure what would happen if he found out I called a lawyer, they were fine with that also.

I do understand the feeling of being stuck. I'm lucky that SAWH has been helpful. We have split the income evenly, though I have to keep all mine in cash because I don't have a bank account. I went to open one up, but since I don't have a license, I didn't have the proper id. So now my next step is to get an id card. I know it feels overwhelming, but just keep thinking of the next step, try not to think about the next 20!
