Also, the divorce seems to still be on. Or at least that is what it says in this note from my lawyer. I thought that it was going to be a note confirming that the case was dropped, or maybe a bill. This was a bit of a surprise.
I had asked my lawyer if we could get more time, and he said that he could ask for another two months or so while we got counseling. My husband agreed, but then he never did anything about it. I didn't want to lie and tell the court we were in counseling, but I wasn't ready to ask for a trial date either. So I never called the lawyer to tell him to do anything about getting us more time, and the case was supposed to be dropped.
And I really don't care for this lawyer anymore. Since he rarely gives me a straight answer, I thought I might be better off without his help. My husband didn't get a lawyer. We don't have money for lawyers. This one is only working for me because my mom paid his retainer, or whatever you call it. I thought that would have run out by now anyway.
So, now I really don't know what's going to happen.
Too bad I don't live in DC. I hear you get good legal advice if you can't afford a real lawyer in DC. And then you also get advice on pizza and hotdogs from the not real lawyer.
