I have to wonder is he is just messing with you. No ethical lawyer would look up anything like that on someone. First of all, it wouldn't be legal for them to do so.
If this gentleman friend didn't say anything specific about what he "knows," I would bet he is just playing games with you . . . maybe fishing for you to tell him things.
I hope this relieves your mind a bit. Let me know if you need more information about this, and, if you do, please share more details with me and tell me more about your situation with this man so I can help you further with this.
Thanks for trusting your question to Just Answer.
I can understand your reluctance to trust, given what has happened in the past. I guess only you can know what is the best decision to make about marrying this man. Yes, being of different faiths can sometimes cause problems.
You think this lawyer would find out things for him? Wow. That is just not right.
I wish you the best is deciding what to do. If I can ever help you further, just let me know. Sometimes just talking about things helps us to see a situation more clearly.
I just realized that you may be prompted to pay again, and you've already paid. Unless you have further questions about this, please disregard the email about paying again.
I am posting this as an information request, so hopefully you won't be asked to pay more.
