My attorney withdrew from my case 5 days before our latest hearing. Obviously, I filed a motion for continuance, but seeing as my divorce has been going on for over a year, I want to end this and reach a settlement. I contacted opposing counsel and instead of entertaining my offer, he used his typical tactic of threatening to subpoena multiple persons not even involved with my divorce. Is there any way to let the court know I presented the opportunity to opposing counsel and he completely ignored it even though the court has ordered mediation? Is he truly acting in his client's best interest if in the end all she really wants is money?
Divorce is the process of formally ending a marriage. Divorces may be jointly agreed upon, resolved by negotiation, or decided in court.
Divorce court is where the divorce process takes place. The court may determine matters like alimony, child custody, and property division.
