Default Not sure of an appropriate title

Hi

So just some people's take on this. The ex is a very unreasonable person and in 2 years is on third lawyer. Just got rid of the last one 1 week before questioning.


Many people involved at length with the situation (doctors, psychologist, social workers) have made the comment that being on a 3rd lawyer is never a good thing for that person.

This is also a very very high conflict situation with parental alienation

I guess can someone explain to me the optics of going through lawyers like underwear?

I don't know if she canned them or they canned her, but like I said, she is very unreasonable.

I am still on my first.

It doesnt mean much other than delays. A judge only cares what is in the docket. Sure they may see new counsel and ask about making sure they are up to speed but in the grand scheme of things you arent going to win because your ex has had multiple lawyers. If they are inept then yes but the number doesnt matter. It could also be that they are the same firm just different lawyers taking on the file. Or they fired the ex and thats why they are new.

Oh no it's all different firms

This current one is tough but doesn't put up with crap
And the mountain of evidence of a behavior problem will catch him off guard.

I have it on recording that she demands money to help with a transition. Just scared for what is happening to my daughter

If you have a judge consistently on the file then they will notice. Generally swapping out lawyers multiple times signals the party who is high-conflict.

Mine is on lawyer #6! Has our kids convinced they can just up and leave when they turn 12 next month. Yup, high conflict people tend to go through lawyers quickly. However, it really doesn't factor into your case.

Your lawyer should be requesting case management.

Our boys turn 12 in March. I will be surprised if I have not received an affidavit for him to remove them from my life by the end of that week.

Even though we have been on this roller coaster for 12 years, I am not quite sure what you mean. We don't have anything active, per se, right now. How does case management come into play?

Here is hoping the other parent and their lawyer is stupid enough to put forward an affidavit from a child. There is no sitting justice that wouldn't loose their mind if they did that. That is a huge NEVER DO THIS kind of thing.

You:

1. Hire proper legal counsel.
2. Review your matter with legal counsel.
3. Determine a path forward which may be to:
a. Bring forward an application.
b. Attend a case conference.
c. Bring a motion.
d. Custody and access assessment.
e. Ask for the court to case manage the situation (one judge for every motion and then trial etc...)

Really... You need a lawyer. You are NOT qualified to deal with the complexity of the legal issues if you haven't resolved it after 12 years.

You stop pissing into the wind with arguing with the other parent and seek the proper legal intervention to seek assistance from the court.

I appreciate your advice, thank you very much. As for pissing into the wind, that's advice better passed on to my ex. But I understand what you are saying.

Both parties are responsible for moving the matter forward. Lots of time people sit on things without moving it forward. A good lawyer will be able to move a case forward.
