Family Law Questions? Ask a Family Lawyer Online.
HelloThis is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard.Yes. Your cousin's attorney has an obligation to ensure that she does not have any legal representation and does not want her own attorney. In other words, because your cousin's attorney prepared the documents, he would be in essence representing both parties even though it is uncontested.I suggest, he can continue to follow up with the attorney via email or written letter and request the divorce be filed. And if he is not going to file the discuss what the retainer was for.
Please let me know here, if you have other questions. Otherwise I would appreciate a positive rating as that is how I get credit for my time and information.
