While going through my divorce I worked for months off shore. When I returned I realized many debts had not been attended to, so I set up a payment plan with my lawyer Michael Mayhall, Covington, La. He wanted me to sign the promissary note at the time, but I explained why I could not. He has since been trying to get me to sign the note, knowing of my medical situation. I have told him that I could not do that without my ex-wifes consent. I have not signed anything promising to sign over my property.
I have also asked him to tell me what my APR is on the interest he is charging me per year for my debt and have gotten no response. Do I need to hire legal council if he takes me to court? I really cannot afford this at this time.
...Thankyou....just received a registered letter notice from him...can I get back to you after I have picked it up and read it?
Thank You very much...feel a little less threatened....
