Thank you for contacting Just Answer.
Answer: I can't tell you what you "should" do, because that would be giving you legal advice.
Ask your attorney to get you a month-long continuance for the purpose of finding/hiring a new attorney and getting him or her up to speed.
Alternatively, you can ask a new attorney (get references! Check them!) to take care of that, as well as getting your file from your first attorney, so that you don't have to contact him again, if you'd rather not.
Here are a couple of places to look for attorneys. Make sure that they have at least five years' successful family law experience....oops, I don't know what state you're in.
Just let me know if you have any follow-up questions. There's no extra charge, of course. I want to make sure that I've answered your question.
If I HAVE answered it and we're through, please be so kind as to click "accept." Otherwise, I won't be paid even a time for my time!
I'm happy to answer follow-up questions. If you have none, please
"ACCEPT" my answer.
There can sometimes be a delay of an hour or more in between my followup answers because I may be helping other customers, conducting legal research, or taking a break. If we're writing late in the evening, I may need to get some sleep and resume helping you the following morning.
