Can a lawyer sue me for a bill from 3 years ago even tho i didnt know i owed it?
I had a lawyer for my divorce over 3 years ago. I spoke with him over 3 months ago and he informed me that i still owed him money. I just today received a bill from him stating i owe him this money from 2016. He told me when divorce was final that if my ex husband gave him $1000 he would call it even. Now he is saying he will sue me for this money. Is there anything i can do?
