Asked 9 months ago - Miller Place, NYFlag
I got not house, no kids, no money, I'm not a druggie, alcoholic, etc, I was a stay at home mom home-schooled my kids for 20 years and that was used against me. My attorney said that the courts don't look favorably upon homeschooling. I was made out to be the bad one. I was under such distress and feel taken advantage of by my attorney. The judge is currently waiting for Supporting Affadavits to finalize the decree. What can I do?
The fact that you believe you were not represented properly by your current attorney may not be enough to undo your stipulation. You would have to show that it is so one sided as to be patently unfair and that is extremely difficult to do. As far as home schooling is concerned, Judges in Suffolk County do not necessarily disfavor it but you have to demonstrate that the children received a good education, at least equivelant to what they would get in public school.
