How do I prevent my ex and his attorney from harassment and collusion?

1 Answers. Asked on Jul 31st, 2017 on Legal Malpractice - Florida
More details to this question:
I have been separated for 5 years, filed divorce in May, 2013, finalized in March 2015. I was left with the sole care of our daughter and nothing else. The ex and atty., have made a game of taking me to court on a regular basis, many times a year, for irreverent matters. Our daughter is used by her father to ask about me and what I am doing, and then, wham, I am back in Court. He thinks I got my SSDI back pay, I didn't. He thinks I inherited money, I did not. Our daughter is suicidal. I have no money, my widowed mom has shelled out $80,000 in care of the two of us, shelter, utility expenses, and legal fees over these years, and is out of money. She is 80 years old, lives in a meager pension and social security. I am awaiting disability. Court assisted harassment for certain. Help! I recently moved away after my daughter graduated US. Still summoned back to Indiana from FL.

You don't. Your ex and his lawyer will by definition "collude" against you. While cries of "collusion" feed the media in politics, they do little or nothing in family law proceedings. Unfortunately, your opponent is person you chose to marry and have achild with, and that is something you will have to contend with until she is an adult and the family law issues expire. At that point they will simply be family squabbles and you can ignore those as you choose. There are no "short cuts" or" I doan wanna" defenses until then so you will simply have to deal with the controvery. 

All responses are NOT to be considered legal advice nor to be relied upon in any as such nor to establish any form of attorney/client relationship. Opinions expressed are solely informational and not a substitute for proper legal advice provided by a properly retained after thoroughly researching the issues presented.

Legal Malpractice
The vast majority of attorneys act ethically and diligently representing the interests of their clients. But what happens when you hire a lawyer who has a conflict of interest, makes errors in your representation, is negligent or breaches his or her fiduciary duty? In those instances, you may have grounds for a legal malpractice complaint or lawsuit. Law firms that represent the victims of legal malpractice can help you file a complaint with your state's lawyer registration and disciplinary commission, while also filing a civil lawsuit against your former attorney.
