I never got any legal advise from my lawyer what can I do? 4 Answers as of July 26, 2013He was an actor in the movie, wrote the film score, he wrote and sung six songs in the film. He went to Cannes, France for the movie premier. The Imdb says that the movie will be in 500 theaters across the United States on November 1st. In our divorce mediation it was agreed upon that I would get 50% of the music and movie royalties. After eight months, my attorney is now sending one liner emails saying; Did you get 50% of the royalties? And Did you get paperwork about your royalties? I've never got any legal papers from this lady. What should I do? Should I consult with another attorney regarding this matter? I know this movie will not be up for an Emmy, but that is not the point.

If you were not represented in the divorce mediation by your own lawyer, then you should strongly consider getting a lawyer now. The mediation may or may not be legal without you having your own lawyer. Your best bet is to go get a highly qualified divorce lawyer. Better late than never.

You may need an entertainment attorney like myself to act as an expert witness, however, you need a family law attorney. You should obtain a qualified family law attorney's opinion of your situation after they have been fully apprised of the facts.
