Common for people going through divorce to go through multiple lawyers. The easiest way to settle financials is to spend so much on litigation that there's nothing left to divide. If it will get it off your mind, you need to talk to an attorney to review the settlement (second opinion) but make it clear you will not be using him/her for additional work if advised you got a bad deal. The fact that you keep posting this suggests the problem is with you and not with the underlying settlement. [ Reply | More ]
