You mention your STBX is psychotic and homeless. Is he living on the street? If he is both of those things how has he had the wherewithal to hire and interact with a lawyer? Not having a permanent address or living on the street could potentially disrupt his government checks. I believe he also needs an address to receive legal aid if that is who is paying his lawyer. Most homeless psychotic schizophrenics would have a difficult if not impossibke time seeking and continuing with the services of a lawyer on their own. Is the OPG assisting him? How do they communicate with or get hold of him if he is homeless?

Good question how he can retain a lawyer. Lets just say that for the last 4 years he has been taken advantage by 7 lawyers. Each of them taking a retainer from him (which he took from our joint line of credit) and the case went nowhere. In turn, it caused me to spend lots on legal fees to communicate with his lawyers. This is why I say we went $120,000 in legal fees debt. It is pretty sad. The current lawyer first confirmed that my exspouse is entitled to money from the sale of our home. So, he sees dollar signs and retained him as a client. He knows he will get paid. The PGT is supposed to help him. They communicate with him through a shelter that he is staying in. His address for documents is c/o his lawyer.

Default Spousal support???

Is there any way you can close the joint line of credit? You’re not married anymore and hes got a representative making financial decisions for him so he should not be using that money.

Could you report these lawyers?
