Greetings. Yes, he can see an attorney…immediately. His delay in protecting his own rights is his fault. He needs to immediately see an attorney, pay their fee, and move forward. He seems to be paying a ridiculous amount. There is no excuse for him not obtaining an attorney. If he says “they cost too much,” then let me say this…how much are you paying now? An attorney could have stopped this from happening and earned their fee by reducing his long term obligations. Now it will be an uphill battle to resolve, although it can be done, and he will pay more now than if he had hired an attorney in the first place. Please, please, please do not let him say he cannot afford it and get him into an attorney’s office TODAY. Let us know if we can help and best of luck!
