I retained a Florida lawyer for debt reduction. The Florida attorney I retained appointed a Wisconsin attorney for the hearing. Prior to the hearing, the Wisconsin lawyer withdrew. I notified the Florida attorney who told me he found a replacemen...
Sorry to hear about this. Your question is a doozy. It's a bit confusing. If the judgment was taken against you in Wisconsin and the garnishment action was also in Wisconsin, then your first course of action might be to hire a Wisconsin attorney to move the court to vacate the garnishment judgment or the judgment in the original action. As for legal malpractice, those cases are very expensive and difficult to win. I'm not quite sure why you went through a Florida attorney. Was the case in Florida or Wisconsin? Without more specific facts it is difficult to give you any further advice. Good luck!See question

It depends. If this is a municipal ordinance violation charge it would not be a crime. All you would have to do is pay a fine. If not, you would have a criminal record and that would be harmful for your future. Nevertheless, it should teach you a good lesson. Stealing seems tempting but the consequences can be brutal. I agree, talk this over with your parents and follow their advice.See question

Whether a pre-nup is valid is a very complex matter involving many factors you have not listed. The link above will give you some basics, but only an attorney with experience in prenups can give you a real answer. There are many excellent counsel here on AVVO who can help. I can only get you started. This is the leading case on the validity of prenups. Often, they are found invalid where one party failed to disclose all assets.

Atty. Bock is correct. Any marriage anywhere within six months of a Wisconsin divorce is invalid. It seems like a crazy rule, but that is what it is. Good luck!See question

Amendments of pleadings and service of them can be a very complicated issue. If you fail to do it correctly the court may deny your request and strike the pleadings. I really think you should have a lawyer assist you. But if you want to proceed pro se, here are Michigan's rules of civil procedure.
