Why don't you ask your lawyer?
Your lawyer runs his own office and his own billing and account methods. This is not a question which can be answered here
We do not have an attorney-client relationship unless we enter into a written, formal letter of instruction to represent; accordingly, I am not your lawyer. The statements I make do not constitute legal advice. Any statements I make are based upon the limited facts you have presented, and under the premise that you will consult with a local attorney. This is not an attempt to solicit business. This disclaimer is in addition to any disclaimers that this website has made. I am admitted to practice in Florida, Oklahoma, and Texas, and to the Bar of U. S. District Courts. Accordingly, my responses reflect the law of those states. I practice extensively in U. S. District and Bankruptcy Courts. Any advice given here is deemed to be within the parameters of the rules of professional responsibility and codes of ethics as promulgated by The Florida Bar and The Supreme Court of Florida, The State Bar of Texas and the Texas Supreme Court, and the Oklahoma Bar Association and the Oklahoma Supreme Court.
Whether you keep this lawyer or not, it would still probably be in your best interest to have a lawyer, even though there was already a case filed by your husband. In most cases, each party files a Petition or counter petition, because each party is usually asking for different forms of relief. In the 4ht judicial circuit, these cases must be consolidated into one. Once that is done, the judge assigned to the lower case number will consider the relief that each of you has requested.
