My ex-husband hired an attorney to file a motion to modify our custody orders in Texas. I emailed the attorney's secretary about mediating instead of going to trial. I made it clear that he doesn't need to take it to trial because I am willing to negotiate the terms and conditions. His attorney ignored my email and i believe he has done so because he wants a lengthy trial.
Hire your own lawyer or talk directly to the opposing counsel.
This answer DOES NOT establish an attorney-client relationship. This answer is based on the limited information provided and is not intended to be conclusive advice. There are likely other factors that might influence or change the advice after a more lengthy consultation.
You should hire your own attorney to ensure you are protected. You can communicate with his attorney directly but it sounds like you are being ignored. You can send an email to the father and let him know you want to try to work it out. This way he can talk to his attorney and be aware of what your position is.
Are you guys set for temporary orders or final trial? Mediation is required in Montgomery County unless a Motion to Waive Mediation has been filed and granted by the Judge. You need to talk directly with the attorney, not his assistant. Make sure you have filed an Answer to the lawsuit. You might need to consult with an attorney to make sure you aren't missing something.
