Yes, you can change your lawyer and no way it will affect your case. You are prosecuting some persons, and if they make effort to settle the dispute, i dont think anything is wrong in that. But, no body can pressurise you accept a settlement if you are not willing to the settlement. The laws you are using are very useful and had been enacted to help the women victims in a marital relationship, however these laws have also been widely misused. Unfortunately these laws have been misused by the women only, and women didnt raise their voices against such misuse. Society is therefore, not ready to easily believe what a women is saying. If, however, your allegations are correct and you pursue your case diligently, you can certainly establish your case in the court of law with required reliefs to you.

Yes. If you are not satisfied by the proceedings (works) made by your present lawyer, you have a right to change your lawyer. It would not affect your case in any manner.

In the criminal case your case will be attended by Prosecutor, you cannot change her unless you obtain the permission of the court under section 302 of Cr.P.C. WIth regard to 125 case you can change your lawyer and it will not effect your case. If you dont want to go with him, show the earlier compromise papers to the lok adalat and represent to them about the fact.

You can change your lawyer with a no objection certificate given from the previous lawyer.
