I know I should have tried to handle this differently in the past. I love my 2 girls and have been very involved in their lives.
This lawyer seems to be a puppet for my ex-wife's lawyer who is also a family court
judge. Maybe he is afraid of him.
He says he agreed to get me out of jail and that is all.
I was put in jail for about 20 months not paying.
I did not get the notice of the hearing even though they left a message on my cell phone.
The original offer was that I pay 15,000 cash and make a plan to repay the arrearage. She claims I owe 34,000 in child support and other fees. I disagree with some of that.
I was told I needed to leave the jail because the judge had signed and sent over an order. I told them that I did not agree to the consent order.
The hearing for tomorrow was set a month ago so that I could show I had done my time and was ready to try to start paying again.
Now it is going to be all about this order that I "refused" to sign.
I feel this as a conspiracy between my so called lawyer and my ex-wife's.
Should I expect my lawyer to try to negotiate?
