Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Don't sign a thing. If you were under duress, be prepared to prove it in some way by either the acts of others...your ex, your attorney, etc. AND/OR your documentable fragile mental and emotional state AND/OR your inability to understand the import of the specific material portions of the agreement AND/OR your attorney did not adequately explain them. If your attorney won't return your calls, send him a letter certified mail RRR regular mail terminating him. Then send a letter to your spouse and his attorney telling them you fired your lawyer; that you signed the prior agreement under duress; that you consider it unfair and null and void;that you are NOT signing the final papers and that if they want the divorce finalized, they should be prepared to start from scratch.
Regroup. Be firm. You can do this!
