Dear liberty_angel1:

Greetings. Yes, that is correct, unless the parties sign a waiver of a conflict of interest. This sounds like a conflict to me and you should make the attorney aware of the same immediately by sending him a letter. Thank you.

Miss Fritts, this said lawyer represented my x during our seperation and then divorce in 2003, I felt it was wrong but could not get anyone to listen to me because I had no money to pay to have my voice heard.

Before the seperation I talked to him about representing me, he declined after I gave him my 20 minute spill, he took my husband instead and lied that I never talked to him, everything I told him was used and twisted to my X benefit, I told him everything I intended.
At the end of the day of being married to a full time drunk, I was penniless and homeless and x had full custody of my child.

Such is life in Brunswick County.

I have read, “an attorney who represented a husband and wife in certain matters may not later represent the husband in an action for alimony and equitable distribution”.

Is this correct?

In 1991 my husband hired a lawyer to represent him in an DV case I had against him, 8 months later we pulled our family back together.
In 2000 this same lawyer represented my husband and myself in obtaining property, he done all the paperwork that was involved, my question is, was it legal for this same attorney to represent my husband in our seperation and divorce.
