Using the same lawyer?
      #493262 - 01/11/09 10:39 AM

So my husband wants the two of us to use the same lawyer, he's the one asking for the divorice, has made an apointment for us to go see one together later this week. We have talked about lots of stuff, trying to agree on everything, i think we have everything covered. But i'm worried I'm not going to get getting enough support??? is there a way to find out with seeking another lawyer... it seems like a good deal for me but what if it's not really??? :confused:

First, a lawyer cannot represent both of you without a Waiver of Conflict of Interest.

Second, in most cases the lawyer represents only one party while the other reviews the proposals submitted.

Third, either way, it is a very bad idea since you will not be fully informed of your rights or the law without having a lawyer, at a minimum, review the divorce documents before signing.

Ok he finally found out this lawyer yep sure will only be representing ONE of us, he will since the waiver and it will be my lawyer that he's paying for (well we are out of our tax refund). He just wants it done and over fast. he's already moved on... thanks for the info!

tried that one with the stbx but she blew my game plan by hiring her own lawyer...would of been sweet because my lawyer would of convinced her that I get everything because I paid for it!
