My lawyer is withdrawing from my case!

Lawyers routinely withdraw from divorce cases. The reasons are numerous, but typically its because the client is no longer able or willing to pay the lawyer. No shocker there, because unless you earn over $300,000 per year, a spouse is likely unable to afford ever mounting attorney’s fees in a divorce. Most jurisdictions allow for the withdrawal, and do so with a fast and easy process. Attempting to prevent your lawyer’s withdrawal is usually futile, so don’t waste your time. Many spouses are allowed some time (3-4 weeks) to get a new lawyer, or decide to represent themselves. The latter isn’t a bad option, so long as you follow some simple rules – which I will cover in another post.
