There has been no answer. I asked you an information request and was waiting to hear back from you.However, to be honest I do not work with rude customers because there are too many customers who need my help. For this reason I will opt out and perhaps another expert would be willing to assist you.

Unfortunately, if you have used up all of your money and can no longer afford to pay your lawyer, it is very likely that your lawyer will cease acting for you, and will terminate the solicitor-client relationship. Thereafter, you will be stuck representing yourself.
