I just want to seek advice on how to proceed with the declaration of nullity of marriage I filed in Manila RTC (no marriage license ground). The hearing was scheduled last June 16 but I was not able to attend due to schedule constraints on my work. My attorney said it's okay if I won't attend coz he can just represent me but according to him, he was late that day, so the case was dismissed. My attorney said we're going to file for a motion for reconsideration but I don't know what happened up to now. The notice of dismissal was dated June 21 but was actually received July 18.Can we still file for MR?
I'm having problems communicating with my attorney, honestly. I don't know if he's serious with the case because it's taking so long. Filed this for a year now and the ball has just started rolling last April 2011 because of several reasons.and then now, I was really surprised to find out it was dismissed. Is it allowed to change lawyers that will take care of the case?
Hoping to hear from you soon.
Thank you very much.
