Subject: RE: Review my case…….
I appreciate your response to my inquiry The reason I have contacted your law office is that there is already an agreement in place and I am bent on getting what is due for me and my children, I tried calling but its little bit difficult to reach your law office, I will try as much as possible to let you into what transpired between I and my ex-spouse before he relocated to United States.
We were divorced in Japan and my ex husband Mr.Lyold Bloomberg now live in Washington, DC . he is a citizen in your country
We both agreed under a separation agreement incorporated, merged into and made part of the court decree for a settlement of child support, spousal support, and medical support of $480,870.00, he has paid me $178,000.00 but still owing $302,870.00 and the stipulated time for completion of payment has long elapsed and i know he has the financial means to pay the balance owed to me.
I request your legal services with regards to compelling him to remit balance owed me. Attached is a copy of the Separation Agreement and the Final Judgment. I will be pleased to provide further information on this case on request and I expect this to be resolved in a timely manner. Furthermore, I seek to retain your firm for this purpose.
Please send me a copy of your retainer agreement and if the terms are acceptable I will sign so we can commence the process without delay,
Thanks you for your cooperation .
