Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
What the attorney did here appears to violate the rules of professional conduct as he has stolen the truck from you and was using that to coerce you to sign the divorce against your will. These types of tactics are not ethical and are subject to disciplinary sanctions by the state bar in LA, and the disciplinary counsel will investigate this conduct.
Also, in the divorce proceeding you can pursue money damages for them illegally evicting you from the marital home and you could actually have a separate civil suit against the mother who owned the house for participating in the illegal eviction.
So you have grounds here to pursue this. You need to get your own attorney and file your divorce in MS and you need to check to see if this attorney was even licensed in MS, because if he did the divorce paperwork for a MS divorce and he was not licensed in MS you can file a complaint against him with the MS bar as well.
You need to get a local attorney in MS as soon as you can to stand up to challenge this and also to file suit against the mother for the illegal eviction.
