Highly unlikely, Bro. Breakdown in attorney-client relationship is the likely culprit. That's not your problem.

Attorney fees are paid from her share of marital asset proceeds. And if she's out-spent those proceeds, that's not your problem either.

So i got my hands on the motion write up! Some juicy details:

I _____ am the defendant in the above captioned matter and submit this certification in support of my notice of motion to be relieved as counsel.

This has been a long and contentious divorce matter in which each of the key issues remains outstanding despite multiple pendente lite applications and attempts at medation. Unfortunately, it does not seem there is any prospect of settlement at this time and there exists a fundamental breakdown of our attorney-client relationship. In addition, my firm is owed nearly $13,000 in fees in which our client has expressed she does not have the ability to pay.

I do not want to breach client confidentiality, however, Defendant and I have reached an impasse as to how proceed in the pending matter. Defendant and I no longer maintain effective communication. She is resistant to my suggestion and advice. Because of these reasons, there has been a fundamental breakdown of our attorney client relationship and it would be improper fo rme to continue representing her.

Attached is a current billing statement indiciating defendants account is in arrears. We repeatedly attempt to collect to no avail. Instead, we receive partial payments which we were at first willing to accept in the hopes that the matter would settle, however, the defendant has chosen to continue to litigate the key issues resulting is greater and greater legal expense. Further, there are no assets in this case from which to secure an outstanding fee obligation.


can i start celebrating yet?

Exactly, if I saw that from my STBX's lawyer, you'd likely hear my screams of joy across the nation.

i have begun my celebration.

If she truly intends to go on pro se in a case which truly is not trial worthy...my lawyer told me to just sit back and watch the entertainment with some popcorn....

i just hope now for a swift close and not some drawn out trial date(s)....

if i am truly indeed successful, i really owe it all to this forum..every victory in my case was due to feedback from this forum. will keep everyone posted.....

Mine is on her 11th (who was also her 3rd) and is about to dump her (for the second time).

This new one will tire of her too. Any communication from new counsel to your attorney yet?
