What kind of case (enforcement? establishment? modification?) and what kind of evidence? When was the case decided?What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? NY
Is there a way to appeal a case and have new evidence submitted based on attoney misreprensation? If so can someone point me in the right direction.? Any help would be appreciated.
Were you in this hearing ?I objected the magistrate. sent my pay stubs w/ the objection. Court can't take any new evidence. the "lawyer" i had totally misrepresented me. she didn't submit my paystubs or tax returns. She didn't submit the two orders; the one that stopped all current support or the judgment which established my arrears at a set amount. Every time i tried to tell her to press the judgment issue she ignored me. i figured that i would let the court look at my case, because i know i'm right about my case. Also on an earlier appearance i gave her a hand written copy of the way my account should have looked. Then i had my wife make a spreadsheet of the same, took her 2 days to get all numbers right, dropped the printout off to lawyer, and when we got into court the ONLY thing she submitted was my handwritten paper. That blew my mind that a lawyer would do something like that.
Anyways i got my decision from the judge yesterday and the magistrate was upheld because no new evidence can be considered. Am I bumming, or is there any legal recourse i can take. I am so frusterated w/ this i really want to know that our system isn't this messed up, but it is. thanks
