I had managed to stay out of a courtroom past my fifth decade of life, and considered myself an average law abiding human. Then one day, my ex decided to divorce me and I had my first taste of courts and lawyers.
I am now, and most likely will forever be, shocked, traumatised, and in terror of the legal system. Lawyers continue to intrude into my life, and want to micro manage it, for no reason, other than their power to do so and my inability to stop them. I have been drained of my life savings and may want to report it, but after reading the fultility of doing so, as presented in this forum, I am not sure how to proceed.
If there is but one honest caring lawyer in this system, let him/her come forward and contact me to advise. I am still unable to be my usual affable self now that this panic has set in and I need to fight fire with fire, and restore ny belief in this country's justice and mercy, which was lacking in my case. Without it, I fear for our country as well as for all decent people. The corruption and immoral behavior, if inherent in the system, is too destructive to ignore.
