You are free to change lawyers any time you want. I suggest that you should first start by discussing your concerns with the lawyer, if you have not done so already. Try to see if things can improve, but if not, then instruct the lawyer in Christchurch and they will uplift the file and start work for you. You can query the costs of your present lawyer and ask the Law Society to revise the accounts and see if they are appropriate. I always recommend mediation to try to resolve the relationship property dispute if you cannot agree, but sometimes you do need to file a case in court, which you may have done. But you can mediate at any time
