Slack attorneys

It is common for an attorney to send a document to another attorney so that they can have their client accept service of the document. Generally it makes the process go quicker. If your attorney is not moving as quickly as you would like, I would let them know so you can address the issue.

I am in the process of requesting a divorce, the lawyer I hired prepared the papers on june 4 I found out today that they only sent the papers next door to my xhusbands lawyer and did not have them served through our sheriffs office now the lawyer is claiming they cannot have the papers served until next week. Is it standard to not have the papers served legally? I think that my lawyer may be working against me. How should I approach this matter without harming my case? Can the BAR Assoc. be contacted by a client? How and Who would I speak to?
