    Default Re: Filing Ex-Parte

    Is your question whether to give the money or not? And I do mean give, not lend. Make sure you understand that, given the circumstances, your chances of getting the money back are slim to none.

    And what happens when the lawyer uses up the $750 that covers only a couple of hours, and wants more money? Will you throw more money into the pit?

    I'm sure you are a kind and sympathetic person, but this is not something that $750 is going to fix and it would be foolish to believe so. All the boyfriend has to do is file a response and the lawyer's bill is going to skyrocket.
