The divorce lawyer filed my divorce papers and request for some furniture and personal items, i.e. clothing, daughters' pictures, cats' beds and toys, from my now ex-husband who threw me out of the house. My lawyer mistakenly left off half of the items I requested on the paper she gave to the judge. I've asked her to revise the list and inform the judge, but she says she will charge more money. She admitted that someone in her office made the mistake. I shouldn't have to pay more. What can I do or tell her?
