Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.
You would amend your suit here.It would be retitled Plaintiff's First Amended ........and you do the changes here within t he Petiition/Complaint that you need to do. If you need to do another one Plaintiff's Second Amended...and so forth.This lets th e court only consider the newest version and disregard the older one here.
I appreciate the chance to help you today.Thanks again.
No the lawyer doe s not need to be there.You would terminate the lawyer in writing tot he judge by letter asking that the matter be dismissed here.The court can do so and end the suit.A letter here should resolve all of this and dismiss the suit.I appreciate the chance to follow up and clarify.
No that should do it, make sure you indicate you have terminated lawyer and are asking to dismiss pro se here.
And copy the lawyer as well.
That would do it, judge will sign dismissal order.Thanks again.
