How do you find out which law firm assists the other party?

Question:

How do you find out which law firm assists the other party?

I suspect my ex is being represented by a New Hampshire law firm for family court matters in Arizona. All her filings are professionally written but submitted by her directly as if she had written them herself. I called a firm that would not verify if there was a client conflict, pretending that their computers were “slow”. The head lawyer was happy to talk with me and ask lots of details. How could I find out if they are representing them? Are they allowed to do this? What remedies could I have?

Answer:

If an attorney represents the other party, they will file a Notice of Appearance with the court.

If an attorney is consulting with the other party or for whatever reason does not file a Notice of Appearance with the court, you are not “entitled” to that information and you would deal directly with that other party.

Good luck!
