If you (Erin) were someone’s attorney, and you drew up dissolution papers, and the judge specifically mentioned putting the child support verbiage in it, and you did not amend the dissolution papers prior to the judge signing them, and now CSE needs an amended dissolution, would you charge your client for the time it takes you to fix your own error? (No, you did not actually do this, MY attorney did this, and now I’m being billed for her to fix her mistake…and I don’t think that’s right…she should have fixed it in the 10 days before the judge signed it, so that it was all signed correctly the first time, and she didn’t. It would have taken her 5 minutes to add the verbiage, and now I’m being billed for considerably more, just to fix one thing that 1. she should have already done, and 2. I could have done on my own, except for being represented, they won’t allow me to do this on my own).
And, my attorney was the “scrivener” here…no paralegal or secretary to take the blame…all on her.
