I am contesting a divorce case filed by my husband.
So much so that the judge got worked up and even warned me that my case would get dismissed.
since the case is filed by ur husband, evenif the court dismisses the same, you would be at advantage
can this new lawyer sign a vakalatnama, without getting N.O.C. from my ex-lawyer on old vakalatnama ? Will I be allowed to go ahead with the new lawyer, without N.O.C. from old one ?
YES - for both
bring it to the notice of the ld. court that the previous lawyer is NOT TRACABLE
u can file FRESH vakalatnama of a new lawyer.
never pay lumpsum fees at once - instead, keep paying as the case proceeds
keep all ur original documents with urself - submit the documents directly in court rather than giving them to the lawyer - u can give photocopies to the lawyer for studying the case.
I will complain to Bar Council
forget it ... hardly any action would be taken against him - dont make ur own hairs gray.
