A friend of mine brought this to my attention today and I want to make sure I don’t cross any lines.
I am going into my 3rd year for a BS in paralegal/legal studies, so because of this I know there is a fine line considered for legal advice.
After playing games with the caseworker and court this week and asking for a continuance, my ex has started making a demand/request to see the baby. I explained that even after he was given the DNA results his refusal to sign the affidavit to put his name on the BC still gave him no standing and explained SOME things that my attorney and CSE told me. I also told him the amount of the CS and when he said the court could deviate I told him the only reasons they would deviate from the guidelines and that neither of us had extrodinary expenses. Of course I got the “I guess someone will be living high off the hog while I’m on the street” (Mind you he’s done nothing since the baby was born or before and says he’s retained one of the most expensive attorneys in town.)
After I made some of those statements a friend of mine told me to tread lightly so I can’t be accused of giving legal “advice” or practicing anything and from here on since he wants to play games (I left out some things in this issue) to tell him to talk to my attorney and not speak to him anymore.
I know he’s recording the conversations and frankly, so am I :)) BUT…
Considering my schooling, shutting my mouth and making him go through my attorney and not dealing with or speaking to him is probably the best advice isn’t it???
