How do I sue a lawyer for placing me as a respondent on a case and what motion can I file?
1 attorney answer
You are correctly identified as a Respondent since you are one of the parents of the children so you cannot remove your name and you would lose a lawsuit. You can choose to do nothing or you can participate in the action. If you do nothing then the court will enter a default against you and you will likely lose the ability to see your children. If you don't want that to happen you will need to participate in all parts of the court case, including meeting any statutory deadlines.
You should consider hiring an attorney to help you with the case.
