It has been over two months since my divorce was finalized, & I've yet to receive the bulk of my financial settlement. My ex was awarded our house. My attorney promised I would not end up on the street as the judge in our case was a fair, caring man. My plan is to purchase a place with the proceeds from the divorce where I can take my pets. They ARE my family. My lawyer's wife does the routine family law paperwork. I have to deal with her 90% of the time. She's nice - but disorganized, loses documents, is constantly flustered, and only works when she feels like it. I made a noise about filing a complaint recently & offended her. She actually told me she takes it personally. I apologized, yet communications have m/l come to a halt. My ex is now having me evicted from the house. I ran into my attorney four days ago & told him what was happening. He said he'd call my ex's lawyer (yet again.) Haven't heard a syllable. I'm going to be homeless in three days.
You are still represented by an attorney, so no other attorney can advise you about this case. You may need to hire a replacement.
