Judge Gave My Soon To Be Ex A Sweet Escape From Sanctions And Attorney Fee When She Had Hidden Her Salary Account.what Can I Do?

Q: I am facing a tough situation. It seems its better to be pro se in a divorce case rather than hire a lawyer. My soon to be ex wife is pro se and I have a not so good lawyer who sometimes makes remarks which sound like he is siding with the other side. Its just crazy.
The soon to be ex did not supply - hid a bank account in which all her salary was going and my lawyer filed a motion for sanctions and attorney fees. The judge did not do anything though she was caught in the wrong and let her go without any penalty - no attorney fee no sanctions only telling her from next time please give full discovery. Is this fair? What can I do?

A: David's Answer: Preliminarily, you're almost always better off with an attorney than without one in a matrimonial case. Perhaps you just need to hire a good one. That said, you have your record & this is something which may be raised at trial and/or on appeal. Call a Westchester Family Law attorney to schedule a consult for a full assessment.
