Have German Law Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Thank you. Can you explain this part of your answer?"If you however retract a motion you are responsable for the fees, you pay your own lawyer`s fees and the other party`s lawyers fees as well" and can my lawyer pay for the costs of doing something I did not instruct him to do?

I sent a "reply to expert" to have the answer clarified but the rate to finish came back as my answer. Can you help? Thank you.
"But if the motion was only retracted because of what your lawyer did you should confront him about being responsible for the costs."
To clarify: so can he legally define that without my action to stop him, this implies my consent? or are his actions his responsibilty? I gave no request for this motion that mandated higher values and payment from the other party: my lawyer spoke of strategies to get the party to participate, I did not translate his motion until after the court hearing. His actions in the other parts were always trustworthy.
