Title: My lawyer cheated me in mutual divorce petition case. Please help.
Post by: legalseeker on March 09, 2013, 04:09:52 PM
Hello there. I went through marital issues with my wife last year and consequently we decided to part ways and apply for divorce mutually. We are just one month short of one year separation necessary to file for first motion. Few days back, my wife's lawyer contacted my lawyer and my lawyer asked me to sign on the mutual divorce petition prepared by my wife's lawyer which was already signed by my wife. I also signed the petition. Both the lawyers said they would get a date in the month which would fall after one year separation period. Few days later I got to know that the petition was filed and it was already withdrawn. And I was shocked to see the statement given by my lawyer as recorded on the judge's order sheet. My lawyer had given statement that I asked him to withdraw the case when I had NOT given any such instructions to him. In fact I made very clear to him that I want this divorce. Obviously he cheated me and did this on the instructions by my wife's lawyer as my wife's lawyer is senior to him and that my wife's side is playing games and they donít really want a divorce. Please advise what I should do to get the order on this petition reversed. How should I go about telling the judge that I didnít give instructions to my lawyer to withdraw the divorce petition? And what can I do to discipline my lawyer? Please help me.
