Just because I am acting Pro-Se, my wife's lawyer does not respond to my e-mails. She was served with a request for a financial affidavit for mediation, and she did not presented it.
She was later presented with a divorce agreement, and she has not replied. I would like to file a complain somewhere. Please let me know who should I complain about this lawyer.
File a motion to compel compliance with mandatory disclosure. You can get a form at the self help unit at the Miami family court. File the original with the clerk and send a copy to your wife's attorney. You can ask the self help unit to help you set a hearing. You will then need to send out the notice of hearing to the opposing attorney. At the hearing you will ask the judge to compel production of discovery items. Remember, you need to produce mandatory disclosure to the other side as well. There is a form called notice of compliance with mandatory disclosure, that details the items required. I wish you luck.

I agree with counsel. If you cannot afford a lawyer you should also check local legal aid. You are at a disadvantage without one if your wife has one.

I agree with the other attorneys. Definitely file the motion and use the self-help center or call legal aid to see if your income qualified for help. Also, do you have any children and when is/was your mediation? If you "impassed," then you should be hearing soon about a status conference.
