Me and my ex went to family court about custody for my daughter. My ex is a conniving liar and he got a lawyer just like him. We went to court and his lawyer made these accusations about me that were so untrue. Like I make meth, I left my daughter with a pedaphiar, I was homeless and so on. Stuff that was so untrue and total lies. After hearing all that the judge didn’t even want to hear my lawyers defense and I lost custody and got supervised visits. Can I sue his lawyer for making false accusations which made me loose my daughter? Cuz they all were lies! What can I do? My lawyer isn’t much help cuz she says not much can do now that the order is in affect
No, the lawyer will be protected by the litigation privilege.
Your chance to disprove the lies was in court.
If all those things were total lies---they would have been relatively easy to disprove. Apparently your lawyer could not do that---we have no idea why--perhaps legal malpractice occurred or perhaps there are elements of truth to the claims.....we don't know.
See a MI family law attorney and discuss the matter in total.
