I obtained a lawyer for my divorce, after the initial rule nisi and some other paperwork I told my lawyer that I no longer have the money to pay them to continue with the case.
They sent in a letter to the judge to withdraw from my case, which I expected. I resently requested that they send me a final itemized bill, (can you believe they charged me for sending in a letter to withdraw from my case to the judge?), sorry I digress. The final bill is for more than I have available to pay to them.
The question I have is, would or do lawyers settle for less for example the last account is for $6500 I only have $6000 available. I dont want to just pay them what I have and end up owing them the rest later, I would prefer to just be done with them.
Thanks for the feedback.
p.s. any ideas on how to obtain a good lawyer that would not cost me the earth would also be helpful, or wishful?
