Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

On an emergency temporary order, you are entitled to a hearing within a reasonable time of the order being issued. So your attorney should be filing for a hearing and all of the information that was used to obtain the order should be part of the public record in the clerk of court's office. You can go to the clerk of court's office and request a copy of the pleading yourself without paying the attorney to go do it for you or paying him to send it to you.

Your attorney should be pursuing an objection and motion to vacate the temporary order and you should be preparing the evidence to show that there is no danger to the child such that an order of this nature is warranted.

Can I ask my attorney for a refund if they have need really been on top of their duties by acting diligently
Family Lawyer: Law Educator, Esq., Lawyer replied 29 days ago

Thank you for your reply.

If your attorney has not properly represented you in this matter you can file a fee dispute and seek some type of refund for them not performing their job. However, if they are doing what they are supposed to do with this case you would not have any legal claim.
