My divorce lawyer is joining the firm of my husband's divorce lawyer.
We have been through the mediation process and it was explained beforehand that what was agreed to was binding.
My dh received a letter from his lawyer informing him of the situation and the conflict of interest. It gave him 4 options. 1. We both agree to proceed with the finalization of the divorce as is since the mediation stuff has been settled. 2. He finds a new lawyer. 3. We both find a new lawyer. 4. We allow the divorce to fall of the docket. (I prefer the latter.)
? If #2 or #3 above happen could the mediation agreement possibly be squirmed out of by either of us? Also, if he retains another lawyer would I be required to find a new lawyer anyway because his old lawyer and mine are now associates?
