Omg! I had a pretty big bill from my lawyer this last yearish (ex kept dragging me back and forth). I've been paying some every month but it seemed like I was never getting ahead (since she's still doing work for me every month the bill just stays about the same bc what I pay each month is about what she charges during the month). I got my monthly bill yesterday and was blown away- she wrote off almost the entire bill!!! She left $35 on my bill (and then charged another $35 for some work she did for me) so I just have $70 left! A tiny fraction of what I owed! I will pay that off this month and then, hopefully, be able to pay it off every month. When I think about how much i've paid her over the last 8 years it makes me sick. If I had been able to put that money in an account for Owen he would have been set for quite awhile after he turns 18.
