i got into law
00:06

professor
00:15
and she encouraged advocacy

really
00:24
understand your rights and understand
00:28
what you need to know in order to move

not look like your divorce
01:19
we really have to pay attention to that
01:22
the nuances that really make your needs
01:26
and your responsibilities different from
01:28
