I have a serious discrepancy with the amt. I was billed for a divorce. When I first spoke with my lawyer, prior to me working with them, they informed me that there ave. divorce fee was approximately 5K$. My exhusband and I had agreed on everything except he wanted a geographical restriction and I did not. However, within 2 months I agreed. We had 1 house and 2 children in which we agreed that I would get. there was nothing else to sever. I gave them 3K4 in the beginning and have paid about 6K4 dollars. they sent me a bill for 11K$ How could this be? It is extortion. I filed in July and the attorney didnt file my case until November but I was told that he had would file it on that following Monday. My child support wage withholding order was done in November as well, however they were billing me for a plethora of things. It ended up being a huge mess in which they switched my attorney in November. My divorce wasn't finalized until June. What can I do and what rights do I have? As a citizen of the U.S. there must be something legally that can be done because people shouldn't be lied to and ripped off. Please help me.
Truly disappointed and ripped off,
