I am self representing on two separate court cases. The ex has a solicitor (or team of lawyers as he likes to call it), however his solicitor ignores my emails and only contacts me when the ex wants to know something.
Not uncommon. Solicitors aren't terribly comfortable with the other party and find it easier to deal with other professionals. However, they can't properly refuse to respond to necessary and civil correspondence directly relevant to the case.
I've had the same problem and it's really frustrating isn't it?
I could send a letter and have it ignored, then pay a solicitor to send the same thing and they magically respond!
They shouldn't be 'uncomfortable' dealing with the other side. They're meant to be professional-they certainly earn enough.
I'll watch this thread with interest to see if anyone can offer advice on the best way to deal with them.
