  1. It sounds like you only paid for documents, not advice, from the lawyer I suggest you go ahead and spend what it takes to get advice and representation, from the same lawyer or a different one.

    This answer DOES NOT establish an attorney-client relationship. This answer is based on the limited information provided and is not intended to be conclusive advice. There are likely other factors that might influence or change the advice after a more lengthy consultation.


  2. If you have receved a waiver, did you also receive a copy of the original petition for divorce. Both documents must be given to your husband. He will need to sign the waiver in front of a notary. He will also need to sign the divorce decree. Make copies for both you and your husband, then return the signed originals to your lawyer.
    If you are not comfortable with that attorney or his staff, perhaps find another attorney.
    Good luck!
