Hi.My divorce case is based on legal aid at the initial stage, haven''t signed the divorce petition yet. The letters that my solicitor is sending to my husband contain major mistakes, e.g. she stated that he has to pay child maintenance 50% of his net salary, instead of %15. This morning I have exchanged 20 e-mails just to change a simple information on my income details in the fee remission form. Her letters are full of grammar mistakes too and my husband calls my solicitor a ''''joker''''.I don''t know what to do. Should I try to change the solicitor and how difficult it would be to transfer my case when no fees have been paid to her yet.
If you transfer you will have to pay your outstanding fees before the solicitor releases your file.
If you have lost faith in your solicitor''s ability you need to write a list of issues you wish to raise and make it clear that you have no intention of paying for errors by your solicitor or the communications that were required to correct those errors.
