My husband of 44 years changed the locks over 2 years ago. I changed family lawyers once 18 months ago as the case had not progressed. The new lawyer made a series of blunders that he now seeks to blame on my poor instructions. I ended up in a mental hospital for 6 weeks so he has found a guardian ad litem and an application is in for him to be appointed. He refuses to work with me otherwise. Another 350 an hour. I am paying a barrsiter, solicitor, forensic accountant and now the guardian. I am disabled and suffer from depression and anxiety and centrelink refuses to retrain anyone over 64 for a new job. So I am stuck in a mortgage the bank should not have approved in the middle of a case. My solicitor gave me a quantum that has proved to be wrong. I still have no maintenance, and the 2 attempts rto have money from asset sales held in Trust for me were messed up in court. Can I sue my lawyer for the costs of all the blunders when the case is finished if I have a guardian ad litem? Including contribution to nervous breakdown for not presenting important facts to the Family Court? I am now applying for Urgent hardship and pension at Centrelink. I have used up all my SMSF on this case to date, based on the wrong quantum that he assured me was correct. If I fight my case I could be left on the streets.
