Someone with more experience than me may have a better answer for you, but I would say there is nothing you can do at the moment, just get your paperwork in on Monday.

I also completely agree with Janus. Thank you for saying this.

Abuse allegations should be a double-edged sword with serious consequences for both parties. This would deter false allegations and...

Trial scheduling endorsement form

My lawyer gave me two days notice that I needed to put down witnesses on this form. I told her I needed more time but she insisted I do it and that it didn't really matter as we could change it...

Substantive vs procedural orders

I was under the impression that at a case conference or settlement conference, a judge only makes procedural orders and not substantive orders. If so, then why is there a box asking if you want the...

I didn't miss the other end of the spectrum, I just didn't address it as it isn't the subject of the thread. That being said, I believe that people who perjure themselves in court ought to be...

Can he forbid me to come to his residence (curbside) to pick up the kids? There's no legal reason why I'm not allowed to be there and it's where he's over-keeping the kids. No court order specifying...

What about when the lawyer works for legal aid? Now it's on the taxpayers' dime. Surely there must be *some* accountability?!
