I contacted an attorney last May 9 2016 for assistance in a

I contacted an attorney last May 9 2016 for assistance in a rather complex situation involving my husband's family - prominently represented by the son - who had tried to keep me away from my husband by:- “Kidnapping” him. I have been told that the word “kidnapping” does not apply to family members, but that is what he did.- Instructing all people involved to keep me away from my husband.The motive was the inheritance most of which was represented by what else, but the money in the bank accounts.The attorney seemed competent as well as pleasant during our first and only visit. Normally a good judge of characters, I was actually happy to have met her and gave her a $ 1,500.00 retainer.Everything seemed fine at the beginning, She prepared a letter addressed to my husband's rehab center to whose members the son had been communicating the above mentioned instructions. It seemed strange that she would show me the draft, but not the final copy, as mailed out. But I did not think much of that at the time.After that the communications were sporadic, better, I tried to remain in touch on a regular basis, first by telephone. She did not take nor return the call, despite the receptionist‘s assurance that she would call back within the next 20 minutes. Having the telephone failed, I sent largely e-mails. Her replies were sporadic, usually consisting of no more than two lines. And provided little help, if any.On June 7 she sent a letter letting me know that she had spoken to the son. She attached information for which I had not asked, nor wanted to see. After that, there was no communication, none whatsoever from her until August 26. She did not send a copy of the reply from the rehab center. There is one logical conclusion regarding such a conduct, or at least a very good question. What was said during the telephone conversation with th son that prompted the woman who had agreed to represent me, to cut off the already unsatisfactory lines of communication.In the meantime, the situation with the husband's family deteriorated. I sent the attorney messages on a regular basis, basically asking what to do. The messages became increasingly pressing: please get in touch with me. I do need to talk to an attorney; I badly need to talk to an attorney. One of them stated: “If you do not want to represent me, pass the file on to an attorney who is interested. But please do something“. No reply, none whatsoever.On June 29 my husband passed away. She did not reply to the letter notifying her about the sad event.On August 10, I sent her a very angry letter candidly expressing my feelings.She replied with two letters, one dated August 26, the other July 15, but clearly both written at the same time: they were answers to my last letter. In both letters she claimed that she had been in touch with me regularly, she had been the best of lawyers both professionally and personally. The letter of July 15 expressed her condolences in, we could say, an exaggerated manner. She also attached a very detailed account showing regular telephone calls initiated by her, as well as all the work that supposedly she had done for me, each with a separate charge. The account added up to about $ 2,000.00, but, because she was such a nice person, she did not expect me to pay the balance from the original $ 1,500.00 retainer.Having been directly involved and knowing what has actually happened, naturally I find the occurrence outrageous. As a business woman in charge of my own corporation, I have dealt with many attorneys in Canada and the US and never seen anything even remotely resembling this experience. The woman's conduct is unprofessional in a way that one we would not expect from an attorney. It is actually not indicative of an attorney at all. Still, how does one deal with the situation. I have letters, many letters expressing my dissatisfaction. But she has fabricated letters claiming to the contrary.Who would an outsider believe?All advice will be welcome.

I'm diabetic and need food often to control my glucose. I

I'm diabetic and need food often to control my glucose. I waited from 11:00AM to 5:45PM at the car dealer to finally sign a contract to buy a new car. At that time I was ready to sign my own death certificate. I put about three dozen signatures on a contract of 40 pages, without questions just to get out of there. Reviewing that contract the next day I realized that an agreement of OTD (out the door) of $22,200.00 plus a trade-in valued at $5,245.00, with financing turned out to be a $38,555.00. In that contract was added on a 60.000 miles prepaid maintenance, a contract security, some other charges that I never asked for. Those extra charges were never offered or mentioned to me, and that definitely do not want.The next morning I went back to the dealer for some explanations. About the financing I was told that I could pay in cash the balance after 6 months of payments and those extra add-on charges could be cancelled after the first six months payments, obviously I had to pay interest for something I never wanted, used or agreed on. I asked three times and I was never told how much it would be the balance after those 6 payments.The contract was signed last saturday at past 6:00PM. I was back at the dealer at noon of Sunday, and told the financing officer that I was ready to return the truck. The financing officer wasn't going to be there for couple days and said we can finalize the contract at his return. I'm going back there today, Wednesday.Originally all I wanted was to buy a pick up truck paying cash to avoid all these complications. After three days they do have my trade-in car and $5,000.00 down payment. I still have my unsigned title for my traded-in carIs it legal for me to tell them that I do not want the vehicle anymore after being misled to sign services I never requested? Thank you

I am recently divorced and my ex husband and I have 5

I am recently divorced and my ex husband and I have 5 children, 3 still under the age of 18. In our divorce we have joint custody and share the kids almost equally. We are both given up to 21 days of vacation time each year. My ex husband just informed me that next month, he will be taking all of the kids to Nigeria for 2 weeks (he was born there), and he asked for my help with passports. This trip will cost him thousands of dollars, however he owes over $20,000 in child support arrears, hasn't paid his spousal support in 4 months, and never finished paying the money owed to me per our MSA for the home buyout we agreed to.He needs my signature for passports for the 3 youngest children, but I have told him that I hesitate to because how can he incur so much new debt when his past debt to me and the children is still outstanding. Can I get in trouble legally for refusing to help with passports. Is that a form of extortion or blackmail?
