What is the name of your state? MO
Ok, I spoke to a new attorney yesterday, and have an appointment to meet with her on Tuesday of next week. She told me that there are certain things I HAVE to do first, and there's a definite time crunch involved, so I need some help.
1) Fire my current attorney. She said she cannot discuss my case with me in any specifics or give me legal advice while I'm being represented by someone else. SO, I need to know how to go about it. If I just send her an email that I follow up w/snail mail that essentially says her services are no longer required, and I'll need to pick up my complete file prior to noon on Tuesday, would that be sufficient?
2) Make sure my current attorney informs my ex's attorney that I will not be attending the deposition on Tuesday since I will be without counsel. How do I 'make sure' she's done this, and what's the proper way to request that she do so?
At the meeting with the new attorney, should I bring the file from my current attorney (assuming she has it for me) as well as my copies of all the filings/communication? Should I also bring any 'supporting evidence' for myself? For example: the journal of drive time to school, medical records for the kids as well as the journal that relates to them, email printouts of communications with my ex, the email I sent to the GAL re: the parenting meeting, etc?
I don't want to inundate her with crap, but I don't want her to have to constantly ask me for things either. Everything is filed in a very organized manner and labeled clearly, so it's not as if she'd be sifting through endless piles of paper.
