This attorney is not on Holdiay - this has been the case with him for the last two months. He just doesn't return messages. I even missed time-sharing with my daughter for two consecutive weeks because he failed to inform me of faxes from my wife's attorney to him - stating the date for visitation. I can visit his office as I have on many occasions, but never find him. He has, on many occasions, said he would file motions on my behalf and never does. What if I ask him to file the required forms and he doesn't? I guess I really need to know how I do this on my own - and I know we won't assist me and if I relied on him to do something it probably won't get done.
If I fire him, can I contact my wife's attorney (bery high priced attorney in Palm beach County) and ask her for continuance? She would most certainly reply NO. Can i file a motion on my own with the court requesting this Monday morning?
Is someone available at the court to help people when questioning forms they are to file on their own?
I'm at my wits end-and really backed into a corner right now. I had to pay over $30k just get get a set visitation day due to her high priced attorney. My wife has paid over $100k (or her family did) and they seem to get whatever they ask for with this judge. I don't have the funds to continue with another attorney but I will lose everything with one that doesn't even communicate with me.
