    Answered . If you have consulted the lawyer that's representing the other party, or even some advice from this lawyer you should ask the court ordered five the court that there's a conflict of interest and that the other lawyer should not represent the other side. There are some exceptions to this conflict of interest.

    Answered . The court needs to be notified of this immediately. I strongly recommend you retain your own attorney to represent you in this matter. It is possible that your contact with this lawyer doesn't create a conflict of interest, but most likely you would have agreed to that if it were the case.
