Thanks for all the responses. It seems the general consensus is that he should not be representing the BM
, but I just want to clarify the situation in case there is any misunderstanding as I don't want to ask that he is removed and look stupid although I do feel he should be removed.
The current lawyer (X) owns a law firm. Some years ago some lawyers in that law firm represented me in my divorce and custody case with my ex wife. This concerned my older child. That law firm still has my court records and other files.
My daughter is from a subsequent relationship where I was not married to the mom, (BM) but I have joint physical
and legal custody
. Lawyer X has been representing the BM for a couple of years and was her most recent "recruit". (The BM has gone thru several lawyers in the past several years.) At the last hearing about 18 months ago, lawyer X represented the BM and my attorney represented me. My attorney did not request his removal. I don't know if that has any bearing on the matter. I feel it is inappropriate for lawyer X to represent the BM against me, expecially when the BM is using vile tactics, when lawyer X has access to lots of privileged and confidential information about me from the past. Lawyer X is most definitely a shady character as my ex lawyer warned me recently.
