What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? The case is in Colorado
My attorney went to court on my ex's contempt charges of not paying child support, not providing health insurance and a vehicle issue (attorney insisted because it would bring me $5000) and at that advisement hearing he did nothing except say ok to everything and now i have a 2 hour contempt hearing next month.
My problem is, my attorney wants another $1000 to continue. I do not believe i should pay him for the reasons of 1) I had come to notice he is double billing me 2.) he had all evidence and allowed my ex to talk his way out of it 3.) i do all the work i write the contempt's (2 different times) and the rule 129 and 129.5 (which has been an ongoing he will not submit to the courts issue for 2 years now) and all he does is copy it to a legal paper and tell me to get it signed and than wont submit anything. 3) i told him Jan 2009 that the state of Kansas child support enforcement is on it because its their job and the kids are on state aide through them and he can't seem to remember me emailing and telling him this since then. And finally my attorney is asking for a 50% of the money that would be rightfully awarded to the children (back child support) even though i have paid him for his duties and been double billed.
My question is...
Is there a way to motion to drop the contempt case?
I had someone offer to buy the said vehicle as is and I will NEVER get the money to fix it right anyway, the state of Kansas is on the case to get child support and health insurance and they will be some what aggressive and i know they will actually do it instead of me paying hords of money i do not have. When i sell said vehicle i do plan on retaining another attorney and firing the old one since he does not defend me or the kids. The kids therapist has even asked why he is not doing anything to protect the kids. The state of Kansas attorneys will also work with the kids therapist and help get a new parenting plan done since my attorney can't seem to read my emails about the parenting plan was only good until may 2008 (the judge had me put that on there to begin with since ex had not had an interest in the children at that time.
