Hello
I am working with a lawyer who I want to disengage. Is it sufficient just to say that we are breaking retainer agreement?The lawyer has helped me a bit on my N400 form and wants her name and signature to be added on part 15. The application has not been submitted yet.I do not want that as I want to disengage them. I can always fill out a new form and send, right? In fact I filed out most part of the form.

This is not a fraud website. I am sorry for the delay.

Yes, you can send a letter to the lawyer and tell them that you no longer wish them to represent you. Send it by mail that requires a signature.

You can go on www.uscis.gov and complete your own N-400.

I hope that helps! Please let me know if you have any other questions. I appreciate this opportunity to help you. I do not receive a salary here at JustAnswer, and am only compensated for my time after receiving a rating.

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.
