EX has new lawyer


#1

Dear stagar:

Greetings. What do you know about the new attorney? Has your ex sent over any new offers at this time? Have you sent over a written offer within the last three (3) months?

As far as my mom - I took her to dinner, got a disney desk set for her desk, and spent the day with her at the dollar movie theatre (amazing how much popcorn one human can eat during a four (4) movie marathon!!!). She gives me so much that I may celebrate Mother’s Day again in September or sometime when there is no good holiday around! Thanks

Oh yeah…I also ordered chocolate covered strawberries, but they are yet to arrive (either that or someone else already ate them when they did arrive). Thanks for asking.

We know that she switched from a BV rated lawyer to an AV rated lawyer. The interesting thing is we have been negotiating between lawyers and we have been stone-walled at every effort. We request more time and she comes back with what would give us less time than we have now. All we want is more time; with the offer that stands now it is every other weekend and two three week blocks in the summer (half of their summer break), rotating holidays (which is about the only thing she is not disputing), and her to meet us 1/2 way both ways when we exchange the boys. She has even refused to allow the boys to get passport…no logical explanation just no. I believe if we try to mediate again that she will try to get more for us, which means we would end up with less time. I believe that she didn’t like her previous lawyers advise (because we are not asking for much) and she has moved on to try to convince someone else. Remember she is the SUPER mom on the outside and a completely different person behind closed doors. Any ideas???

I am glad you had a great mother’s day. Now for father’s day my husband would love a movie marathon…you just gave me a great idea. THANKS! Call Sharies Berries and ask them where they are…if you have any luck like mine, they were delivered to the wrong house…I did not get my mother’s day flowers until Wednesday … we get several different reasons, but it comes down to poor planning.

I appreciate you advice and respect what you think.
Thank you,

Dear stagar:

Greetings. I personally rate attorneys on how the majority of their clients view them and what I know of them in court, not as BV or AV. So, check with your attorney about whether or not the other attorney likes to settle or not.

Now, as far as the mediation - if it costs more, then I would not go. If she wants to make an offer, have her send it to you.

As far as the berries - they arrived and were immediately eaten. LOL [:)][:D][:)][:D]

I have just a few curiosity questions question…in your opinion, if the other party changes lawyers within 3 months of our scheduled trial date is the a good or bad sign for us?

also, the new lawyer wants to attempt mediation with lawyers involved in the mediation this time. Why would this be offered? Our inclination is to decline as we have already tried the court appointed mediation and it failed miserably and we don’t have any reason to believe her stance has changed, just the lawyer.

Thanks a million…

BTW Janet, what did you end up getting your mom for mother’s day?
