I want to know if by her miscalculation, I have a case against her for legal negligence and/or malpractice? We were in mediation yesterday and the mediator immediately thought the fact that I was paying my ex husband $569 a month when I am primary guardian and he has only 116 overnights and I have 249 was ridiculous and he calculated numbers on 3 different worksheets. There was absolutely NO final calculations that confirmed my attorney's number. Now I am out $2100, soon to be almost $2700 and she continues to bill me for things that would not even be an issue if her initial calculations were correct.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
