In a pro-bono representation, is the lawyer bound to have a signed " Agreement To Represent" with the client. Our attorney didn't have us sign one. It was a family court custody litigation.
Further detail about the matter would need to be known. A requirement for a written agreement may stem from multiple possible entities. You are represented: I urge you confer with your own att'y. You ask 'what to do': 'What to do' depends upon what the problem is, if any. You are free to seek a formal 2nd legal opinion at this time & that may be what is best for you to do.

I am not sure that I understand the situation. What does having the case under advisement with the judge have to do with whether or not you have a written agreement with a pro bono attorney? One does not impact the other. If you had a pro bono attorney, that means they we're working at no cost to you. Are you suggesting that they violated that agreement in some fashion?
