My wife has served me papers for Divorce of bed & board 45 days ago. It referenced a 30 day timeframe for my response. An attorney I have used in past for other issues requested a 30 day extension which he said is very common. I have to counter because she is asking for full custody & I pay her legal fees. She was the one that had the affair and I’m the one out of my house & not with my children!!!
I am pursuing a suit for Alienation of Affection & Criminal Conversation, just have not actually sat down for the consult yet to get the ball rolling. Guess I was hoping we could work things out & make it more civil.
Question is “should I hire the same attorney to handle the Divorce and the AA/CC suits or is it more wise to have two seperate attorneys? What are the advantages or disadvantages both ways?”
Thank you for sharing your knowledge and experience!
