Customer Question

My lawyer quit after submitting several Agreed Orders. She did not tell me she was going to quit until after she submitted them. Is there a way I can rescind these orders?

Hi, my name is ***** ***** i would be happy to help you. You are curious how to rescind the agreed orders that the prior attorney filed?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.

Yes. I am currently without representation and feel having these orders outstanding put me in a serious deficit position financially and strategically. they were originally filed Apr. 14, 2016, and husband has been saying he wants to handle things between ourselves for weeks, and has not put anything on table, yet.

Expert:  Taylor replied 3 months ago.

Unfortunately those orders are with you and the suit as long as the suit is filed. You could consider filing a dismissal w/o prejudice and then you have another year to refile and start the case a new. Does that make sense? I would consider hiring a local attorney to review your case as these things are difficult and i always suggest an attorney helps!
