How do I remove my child custody
attorney from record, before the final orders are entered? He did a terrible job on my case, and I no longer want him involved. Unfortunately I was with him through the trial, and I was told that because of this this means
he's now legally obligated to finish the final orders before he can withdraw. Now the other side is racking up a phone bill with my attorney unnecessarily, and surely he's going to end up coming after me for the bill. And the other side has filed an objection,
which I cannot afford for him to pay to defend. I need to be able to respond to the objection myself. I already told him I do not need his help in these other matters he's been discussing on the phone with the other side, just that I need him to get the final
orders done (so I can get rid of him). It's been a month and a half since the trial, and I have not yet seen a proposed draft final order from him. I believe he is intentionally stalling so that he can get a lien and take the chump change of attorney fees
I was awarded. At this point I would HIGHLY prefer to write and file my own orders, as I do not trust them to write theirs, nor do I want to pay him to write his sloppy version. What do I need to do to get him removed as my attorney of record? This sounds
insane to me that I'm legally required to continue letting him bill me even though I do not want or need his help.
