Legal Term Help

Good evening;

Served the ex a document, and inquired as to representation.

This was the response from the ex's lawyer.

Thank you for your correspondence. We confirm that we are retained as agent counsel and not Solicitor of Record. We do have instructions to accept service of this enclosure as her agent as well as any further correspondences or documents from your office.

It would appear that if they are "Solicitor of Record" then you must send all documents to them. Since they are "Agent Counsel" they are advising and have drawn up conditions with your ex to outline what they're doing. I would expect that they get to charge for any and all correspondence they handle in their capacity as counsel.

They're just basically saying she hired them and they have her permission to receive documents directly from you and/or your lawyer.
