Customer reply replied 6 months ago
we are getting divorced, both have lawyers. when i tried to contact hers directly, not thru my attorney he refused to speak with me citing a conflict and that i would need to enter something pro se saying i no longer have an attorney. from what i understand though theres no rule saying he cant talk to me and tell me what she is going to ask for during mediation. is there or are they just trying to rack up billable hours?
Family Lawyer: FamilyAnswer, Lawyer replied 6 months ago

Thank you for the reply. What the attorney is telling you is correct. If you are represented by counsel, they can not speak with you unless your attorney agrees. You can not contact them and be represented by your attorney at the same time, so if you want to try and resolve this, your attorney needs to speak with her attorney to settle this I know it is not ideal but when a party is represented an attorney cannot speak with them directly unless your attorney is aware and allows this. There is nothing wrong with trying to resolve this but you need to go through your attorney.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.

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.
