I have come to the conclusion that this exactly what many of these people do. I know someone whose divorce seems endless and why? it is because the divorce solicitors seem to forget whose side they are on, forgetting that they are being paid to bring about a reasonable resolution.
People are afraid to complain to their solicitor because every and any complaint or request costs more and more money, and will they drop them if they complain?
You have one solicitor, maybe two or even three or most likely a clerk, who jots down every second of your time. Are they looking after your interests, one can only hope.
Each divorce solicitor takes ample time, sometimes one or two weeks to respond to a simple request ensuring that their client has to come to them again and again adding more and more to their big and over flowing pot.
The response by these people to their client really is quite pathetic, even when a client has requested that the solicitor contacts them and yet is totally ignored! this is not is not unusual, this is where they are intimidating.
They are in a world of their own and care only for how much money they screw the customer for; the modern day double glazing man.
Where is the justice if one of the couples is severely disadvantaged financially by looking after someone who needs full time caring, not only that but paying a substantial rent whilst the other stays in the home!
We are aware that matrimonial property is supposedly divided equally but are the solicitors aware of it!
what about non-matrimonial property, for example where a substantial input of money is brought in by one of the divorces, especially if it is a short marriage.
I am at odds with solicitors who procrastinate and do not seek to look after their clients interests, making it very difficult for the divorce to come to an expeditious end
