Family law questions? Ask a family lawyer online.
Hi there this is Leigh, an attorney. Do you still need help with this?
Ok give me just a minute to review all your statements I'll be right back.
So this is tough, I completely understand what you are saying and that is a shame about your attorneys wanting to take your money rather than be aggressive and do the right thing. So you are trying to prove that she quit a higher paying job, trying to blame her health problems.
Have your attorneys done any discovery? Interrogatories.
Yes sorry one sec.
So in discovery you can flat out ask, are you unable to work due to a disability/illness/disease, etc., if so, provide all information. I would have your attorney send pointed questions of that nature to obtain that information for sure. It happens all the time.
So you can send MORE discovery is what I am stating. Or do a motion to extend discovery, that is how you get this information.
If the judge will not allow it, then you will not be able to get that information is what I am saying. At trial of course your attorney can cross examine your ex about health isuees etc.
Ok well if you do not want to do or cannot do more, then really just question through cross examination is the only way you can do this. OR subpoena her ex employer etc.
You can subpoena her doctors but they will say that it is protected by hipaa... you can always try. I think they will object though. I think you can ask her to provide proof and cross examine her on it. But yes I would subpoena her doctors but again I am not sure they will testify.
For business that make sense, but not for your health...Absolutely not. But speak to your attorney about subpoena her medical records and doctor.
Yes anytime you have any business it is absolutely more involved and the more successful the business(es) the more complicated. I don't think a criminal defense attorney would be necessary, no.
Is there anything else I can help you with/
