This answer was rated:

I am acting as pro se, I have been sending emails through my EX's lawyer because my EX's responses have become angry, demeaning and non productive, however, my EX's lawyer has said she will no longer accept the emails and suggest I email my EX directly, which places me back into a cycle of verbal abuse from my EX. Is my EX's lawyer bound by law to accept my correspondence and advise her client? I am in Michigan and this is a family court post divorce case.

If I am unable to get a response from my ex about a question pertaining to our CO is Her L obliged to accept my inquiries?

Thank you
Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking.

Your ex's attorney is responsible for accepting legal pleadings on behalf of his client for as long as they represent their client. As far as questions or attempts at settlement or negotiations, her attorney does not have to accept your communications and answer them. If you are having problems with your ex, then you can send them to the attorney and clearly state in there that you are sending them to the attorney to get answers because their client will not cooperate and this is your good faith effort to cooperate. If the attorney tells you to cease, then your next step is file a motion in the court asking the court to order what you want and bring the matter into court. It might be that the ex is not paying her lawyer any longer and the lawyer is not willing to do anymore work for her and in that case the lawyer is not even obligated to respond to you at all.

Your next option though is to set the matter for a hearing and get the court to issue orders on what you want since the ex is refusing to negotiate or deal with you in good faith.
