She e-mailed me on July 7 that she was not going to represent me. She went to hearing with me on August 3. Thus, I thought she was still my lawyer and we'd worked through the glitch. She hadn't...

The judges kept ordering more hearings and finally put it to trial. We'd seen five different judges during the case management hearings - so nobody really cared what was going on. The divorce was...

Person to Person Costs

The judge awarded me "person to person costs". Can somebody explain it to me - and how that is computed? It would seem fair that he pays all costs above the normal cost of a divorce since he was the...

Thanks. I guess they'd have to give him a couple weeks to move out, too.

That's just an estimate - she won't tell me what I owe. She also gives a 30% discount to women who were in the local...

What's duty counsel?

She did good getting the divorce just 12 -1/2 months after leaving. But 17 months of dragging out the financial separation agreement is sooo not acceptable.

I'm rather...

He is on the title. I can not change the insurance on my vehicle unless he'd go in and sign for that - and he won't. Thus, the coverage I have is what he wants it to be. I'd like a bigger umbrella,...

Thank you, Stargate,

He's retired. He just refuses to answer the door when his lawyer knocks. I'm surprised his lawyer hasn't fired him as a client (presuming they can do that).
