Child Support Modification
I contacted Attorney Dana Eller Niehus concerning an existing court order for child support. The free 30-minute conference call scheduled almost a week ago today ended up being 15, five of which was spent holding until she clarified a question with a colleague. I felt so rushed when talking to her. She said I could tell her the whole story (didn't have a chance) but the resulting answer to what she believed (transfer of my case) would be the same. I explained to her that my existing court order is local to where she is, that my child lives with her mother (custodial parent) in a different state and I was advised by other attorneys in my area to seek a local attorney where my case is because they may have to travel for court appearances and because that county has jurisdiction over my case. But, she was more concerned for any burden that would be placed on the CP to travel if a court appearance was necessary than me as a potential client. I asked her if it wouldn't be just as burdensome on me if I sought counsel where my child lived and I had to travel and even more so due to my child support obligation. But, Ms. Eller brushed over the question like it was never asked. She said she was willing to take my money and suggested that I sign a waiver so she wouldn't be sued for any money I paid her in the event my case was transferred to where my child lived. I was rather disappointed and can't say that I would recommend Attorney Dana Eller Niehus to anyone.
