Q: I had a lawyer. When I asked for him to file a motion for me and he would not do it for me
I went and filed it anyway on my own. After I filed the next day I fired my lawyer. Is there any repercussions against me for doing this? And the judge has not signed off on the order to release my attorney and it has been two weeks since I filed this and fired my attorney. I have a court date this week and have no idea what is even going to happen other than it’s a hearing for final settlement of an estate. Will my objections even be valid? Just wanting an idea of what to expect when I go to court. I have not hired a new attorney and haven’t planned to right now. Thanks.
