Greenwood, AR asked in Family Law for Colorado

Q: limited scope lawyers

I am the petitioner in the case; Can an attorney for the other party send me emails about matters even though she has withdrew from the case months before? Can she also draft paper work for the other party who is now pro se, without entering into the case again? When confronted about her no longer being on the case in an email, the attorney proceeded to state that she does not need to explain her representation to me, I stated I will not be speaking with her unless I see proof that she is representing the other parent, The attorney no longer responded and the other party filed the motion which states was drafted by the attorney.

A: She might be representing the client in a limited scope capacity in which case she could communicate with you. If she is working in a limited scope capacity, she does not have to enter an appearance depending on whether she is representing in court or not. Though she should disclose to you if she is representing the other party in a limited scope capacity.
