Hi, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I thank you for your inquiry. I have been practicing law for 19+ years and look forward to assisting you.
Consider filing a proposed Consent Order for dismissal of your motion. You and your husband execute and notarize an agreement where in you agree to dismiss your motion and he agrees to that dismissal as well - include it in your Motion for it to be so ordered by the court (due to it being "consented to" by all parties). The judge should dismiss. Consider calling the clerk to ask her the procedure in your court - i.e. must you file a request for Consent Order, or can your own request to her, in writing and faxed over, suffice? Usually courts are happy to dismiss things - as it helps lighten their tight schedules.
If you decide you do want to go forward, consider increasing the retainer amount you are willing to give the lawyer (double it) to take your matter on, and look OUTSIDE of your county. All you need is a state licensed attorney, not a local one. There are tons of general and family court lawyers, just look a little further away and have your retainer out and ready.
I hope this helps! My goal is to provide you with excellent and accurate service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back, I am happy to address follow-up questions. Kindly rate me "excellent" when you are done. I look forward to assisting you in the future, should you have legal questions. Be sure to start future posts with "To Alexia Esq., ONLY" if you want me to specifically answer it.
Sincerely, XXXXX XXXXX
