    If your divorce is complicated or new issues have arisen that require more work, your attorney may be asking for more money in order to put in the extra time needed to complete the process. That being said, if you feel that she is intentionally dragging things out, you may want to consider getting another attorney. Before taking any action, I recommend contacting your current attorney to discuss your concerns. Good luck.

    Great question. Attorneys can practice in whatever areas they would like to practice in. Even though your friend's attorney may not describe himself as a divorce attorney, he may indeed have experience handling divorce cases. That being said, if you're sensing his knowledge of the area is limited, you should research experienced divorce attorneys in your area. Attorneys who specialize in divorce are often very knowledgeable about this particular area of the law. Please see the link below...

    I'm not sure what you mean when you ask "is it considered a divorce." The decision of whether to divorce your spouse is a personal one that only you can make. If you decide to move forward or learn more about the divorce process, contact an experienced divorce attorney in your area. There are some fantastic attorneys on Avvo in your area. Best of luck.

    You and your attorney are on the same team and have to work together. Reflect on what items you think you could perform more quickly or efficiently than your attorney, and contact your attorney to discuss your list. If you aren't satisfied with your attorney's answers, it may not be the right fit. Regardless, you have a duty to keep your attorney in the loop. Good luck.

    You can certainly file for a restraining order and a divorce. I encourage you to take immediate action to protect yourself. Here is a link to a list of resources in Alameda County: http://www.acfjc.org/files/04192011DVGuide.pdf. See the top of page 2 for a list of local legal aid organizations that should be able to help you. Good luck.
