thanks for your write up.
no,i am not hurt at all.Please dont think that way.
my main idea was to let the thread starter know that if waive off cud be dun in my case,there must be some law to support it,which his lawyer shud find out.so that he also gets it.
hence i wrote a bit further,to explain tajobs,when he raised a few points.
although this is my last post in this thread and i dont wish to revive my past trauma,nevertheless,just for ur information,after the mediation in 2009 ,i had appointed this new lawyer immediately and told him how i was pressurised
obviously i only depended on my new lawyer for advice.i also did not know of LCI at that time where i cud seek opinion.
he never advised me that i shud file a complaint in mediation centre against her.when i went back to the district court where my DV case was already pending,i courageously told the judge that mediator had pressurised me and made me sit in the centre till 10 PM.to sign the settlement but my lawyer discouraged me from saying so.and said so very specifically after the hearing also many times, that i shud not speak against her.hence her guts!
if i had not followed him and did my own thing,and if something went wrong,the same lawyer wud have said that i am in problem because of my own doings.so,u see,its difficult to decide in such situations.
u see,legal knowledge and information on wot i shud have dun in such a particular situation is not made available anywhere to the common man.but only he is blamed for ignorance of law.
i am not presenting any grievances.as my matter is over.
if u felt i did so,then maybe unconsciously they got reflected,not because 6 months got waived off or it happened thru POA,but because of the manner in which these situations were handled by persons whom we trust,right from drafting my DV case,till this stage.for example in DV Case,my lawyer took 6 months just to draft,and made me do all the running about to send notices to my husband and his parents.i went to MEA office thrice in summer months,when temp. used to be above 40 degrees to deliver these notices.and only 1 month left for my exam.
if i finally gave up and agreed with the forced settlement,it was not because of my own choice,but because i had experienced by now after many many incidents,that people i am relying upon may not fight for me with passion.
with the above comments,i close my comments now..
