I would think a lawsuit should be your last resort.
I agree that a lawsuit should be the last resort. The problem I have is the fraud. I feel that I have been somewhat compensated for the padding of the bill but it appears that some of this padding was due to felony behavior.
Going through a divorce can be emotional exhausting and to have an attorney who calls you up every couple weeks asking for more money is not helpful.
One of the calls was similar to someone calling you and saying that you need to send money so that your son can get out of jail in a country he was visiting. then come to find out he was never in jail but someone ripped you off.
I think this is called fraud and it is a felony.
