How do I respond to a request for a motion to withdraw counsel? Do I automatically accept it?
Is this your own lawyer?
If so, will you be left without a lawyer after the withdrawal?
Even worse. If it is the other side's counsel who wants to withdraw then you really have no say in the matter and while you can appear in court to object to the withdrawal, it most likely will not do you any good and if the opposing counsel really wants out of the case then the judge will let him/her out of the case (sorry).
Yes -- you call it First Amended XXXXXXXXX (whatever the document name is XXXXX XXXXX example First Amended Motion to XXXXXX).
Got it and many thanks.One last thing, one of my repsonses is on a motion to change venue from the opposing party which I object to. I have 2 questions:
1.Do I have to include a sworn affidavit in support of my response?
2.The opposing party sent only 1 sworn affidavit- their own. Is it also one of the valid defenses from me that they did not comply with the TX rules of civil procedure and include at least 3 other affidavits by credible persons who are residents of the current county where the case is pending?
Tha answers are (1) yes if you can pull one together (2) yes if it is required by the rules.
Just to let you know -- you really should be posting these questions separately due to the separate nature of each of them -- if you are on a subscription plan it will cost you nothing to press accept or submit on each answer posted by an expert and that is why the site likes separate questions posted separately when you have a lawsuit you are working on and you are on a subscription plan.
Many thanks for your quick and concise response.
And I will post questions seperately in the future as you have suggested.
