My lawyer and I verbally agreed to $ 1000.00 flat rate for an uncontested divorce. I gave him $500 to start by serving the Action for Divorce. He did serve this it has been past 30 days my spouse did not sign. My lawyer wants to now file default with the courts but wants his balance of $500 paid now?? But I still do not have my divorce?? Should I be concerned? I just wanted to know if this is legal and if I should be concerned?
Attorney's fee is paid completely before your case will be finished.
