I had been representing myself but recently hired an attorney. Does he have to file a notice of appearance with the court and notify the other party, or can he just show up for hearings without doing either.
It's standard operating procedure for an attorney to file a notice of appearance on a case after you become their client. It lets all the parties in a case know that the attorney is representing you. It also lets everyone know the correct mailing address and phone number for your lawyer
