      I’m not happy with the service offered by my divorce lawyer whom I feel just sees me as a cash cow – charges high expenses but doesn’t spot mistakes on the documentation for example. In other words, there is sloppiness. Not what you need in a divorce, when this person has responsibility for securing your future. Has anyone changed lawyer part way through the divorce process? Is it actually possible, since their law firm is named as representing me on the court/divorce papers. I’m not yet at the stage of being granted decree nisi by the courts. Is this too late?

      I felt the same about mine but looking back I was just on emotional high alert from abuse.
      They do make mistakes and so did/does my ex husbands.
      You can change as it’s an expensive business and you need to feel secure – it’s just a job to them and actually deep down they don’t care. Maybe if you see it that way you might be able to stick with this one and just get the job done? Sooner you’re divorced the better eh?
      I recently wondered why mine didn’t tell me to call the police when I told her about assaults. My mum said it would be like blaming the check out assistant for not telling you what peas to buy…hummmm…not sure!! Just make sure you have emotional support from another source and you only need a solicitor to ease the paperwork burden.
      Good luck x

      Hi cirrocumulus, I changed my solicitor about 4 weeks before the court date. It was easy to do and a really good decision.
