Wow. It's a "ghost-town" on this board. If there is anybody lurking, here is my update. I have a new lawyer who has the opinion (as does one other lawyer) that I have a legal case against my previous lawyer for losing a LOT of money for me. If my new lawyer is able to "undo" (i.e., vacate her previous order), I will not sue my previous lawyer, but my husband feels that I should sue her if my new lawyer is not able to undo this tangled web.
Yuck. My divorce was final 9 years ago. My conclusion is that the legal system is a venue for people who want to argue, especially abusive, narcissistic men (although I am sure there are some women like that.) I think my problem is that I have always been the "nice person," who gets walked on, and I have to stand up for myself, now, to establish boundaries. With each new lawyer and judge, my ex gets the benefit of the doubt until they learn, over time, that his words mean little, but his behavior speaks volumes. <sigh> <deep breath> Patience and persistence. I feel like the turtle in the turtle and hare story. Life moves forward.
