What do you do when your lawyer's office ignores you?
Almost a year ago, I paid a lawyer $2000 to initiate a child custody case. My ex got served in jail (imagine that..lol). I owe a small balance, from several re-servings, and would like to pay it. Also, since Ex was served, and chose not to reply, it's time to move on thru the process. The lawyer's office rarely returns my calls, and I am tired of the BS. I can't say for sure if it's my lawyer's fault, or his secretaries. I am currently on Active Duty for the Army, and can't just drive over to the lawyer's office, at least not for a few more weeks.

How do I force action?
Additional Details
Yeah, "new" lawyer sounds good, but I already paid this guy, and LovesTheConstitution, I can't pay the balance, if no one will tell me what it is. That's the main reason I am awaiting a return call, so I can carry my **** up there, and pay the fool what I owe him.

Sue your lawyer with another lawyer. And if that one stops returning your calls, sue that one with another lawyer. Et cetera.

Calls are judged on the amounts of money you are willing to pay them. Offer them more money so you can ask them a question.

As a paralegal, I can tell you that their case load is such that they don't file a case until they have to. They'll wait until the last minute and often have to run to the courthose when they had plenty of time for action. All this time, the client is calling in and asking the status of the case after lying out their life savings. They got your money, that's what is important - to them. Any phone calls will also be charged to you, if and when you are actually put through to an attorney. The particular one I worked for would have me lie to people. I am not ethically okay with this. He would have me lie to his wife about his girlfriend as well.

I don't work in this field, and am glad to have gotten a good dose of reality of how our extremely flawed system works. It's designed to be inefficient, and it is.

I don't know your particular lawyers problem, and you can call the american bar association if you suspect ethical issues.

Tell them that you want this thing either finished or in the pipeline by the time you return. If its not, you will not only take your matter to a new attorney, but you will also initiate a complaint with the state bar based on your lawyer's failure to take care of your interests. Also them that you will sue if any deadlines have been missed due to their negligence.

Send it by a certified / registered letter or email so you can prove they received it.

Don't just "like to pay" your debts to the law firm...PAY THEM! Most attorneys cannot afford to spend time on cases in which the client has stopped paying. $2,000, as you realize, only initiated the case. A custody lawsuit will cost MUCH more.

Realize that paying up just catches you up for past expenses. You will need to pay for the anticipated work that will follow.

When you are paid up for past and anticipated expenses, if the attorney does not respond, tell the receptionist or the answering machine or his email that you expect a response by a specific date and that, if you do not re-establish an appropriate lawyer-client relationship, you will refer this matter to the state bar grievance committee. You will get results. If not, file with the grievance committee and get a new lawyer.

Well as you know JAG cannot help you with this, except to give advice. I am Army and had a similar problem....I went to JAG and they called the lawyers office for me and I was amazed that things worked out within 5 min. So you can try that. Other that you can file to have the attorney removed and proceed without him. It sounds like all you need to do is file the final paperwork as your husband would be in default. JAG can help you to fill out the final order.
