When my divorce began it was in 2006, so I do not have any money to pay back. The settlement fee of 56,000 was agreed in court etc and p[aid by my ex wife's solicitor into my solicitor's account 4th August 2013.
He maintains that legal aid have only granted half of it to be given to me in March 2014 and the other half later on?
I do not understand why this would be and find it extremely peculiar.
Thanks again, before I contact the Law society, I would like your views on if you feel it is unacceptable?
My solicitor gave me a 100% guarantee that I would be getting the other half of my 56,000 when they legal aid gave the advice to release it.
He definitely says I will be getting the full amount, he says they are just waiting on clearance?
why would they allow half of this amount 28,00O to be given to me?
Sorry to be such a pain...... he said he had been given clearance to release half of the amount and the other half would come later!!!
This is why I find it all very strange, that the amounts would be split up like this? Do you feel this is legitimate?
Is the LSC the law society and how would I get in touch with them and what should I say?
Thanks so much,
Thank you so much for your help. I will contact them.
who should I ask to speak to? Also how do I verify who I am, do I just need name etc? I wouldn't need case number etc as solicitor would have this?
