I lawyer handled a criminal case 2-4 years ago, and I am

Hi,My name is***** lawyer handled a criminal case for me 2-4 years ago, and I am still on probation. He has been paid a great deal in full, but does not seem invested in representing me to adjust my sentence now. Requesting and helping me reduce my sentence was what he stated he would do, at this point in time. Again, he seems not to be interested in doing this. I requested a copy of our contract, which he says he cannot provide. I have a copy of the payments he received from me, which again were very substantial ($50,000), though he said he "may not have a contract for me." What can I do to ensure I get the representation I paid for, or if not, see my money refunded?Thank you,Nick

My husband and I may be parting our ways. We would be moving

My husband and I may be parting our ways. We would be moving to seperate states. We are selling our house which was purchased with my inheritance. He doesn't wish to split our assets, as they were mine before we married. I will not ask any alimony either. So, before we go to our seperate states, what paperwork statement might make this agreement clear...maybe also to have a start date for legal seperation . I know I will probably need to wait one year to establish my residency in my new state before filing for divorce. We will be on seperate coasts. How do I proceed most wisely.

I'm getting married this month. My fiance has to pay alimony

I'm getting married this month. My fiance has to pay alimony to his ex-wife. My fear is that if he is for some reason unable to pay her alimony, I don't want her trying to get her hands on my income. He is in government contracting and sometimes the contract ends and he is out of work for a while and even unemployment wouldn't cover the amount.Will a prenup agreement protect me from this?Thanks, Tonya

I have a question on behalf of my partner whose ex-wife is

Hi Richard, I have a question on behalf of my partner whose ex-wife is taking him to court on enforcement of a property settlement. The divorce was in 2009 and the property settlement was for loss to her investments (yes, during the great recession). His income was significantly overstated in the divorce (had 1-time income that year) and he signed documents under duress and without representation. He did not have the income then, and will never be able to pay this off (it's 6 figures). Is there any legal avenue to fight a property settlement? I've seen information on "sharing the misery" but it's outdated. Thank you for your time.
