You appear to be asking us to read minds. If you are waiting for your ex to do the work then any consequences are out of your hands. If you have fears, then take control.

Drag the ex back into court: a followup motion with stronger order requirements, and ask for costs for motion to be paid in 28 days. And keep doing it. Contempt is not handed out quickly nor easily,...

Trial management conferences happen, like everything else in family law, when you ask for one . So, ask for one. If we aren't proactive in the court system we are asking to be steamrolled.

Yes, it is allowed but you need to arrange it. Start with a motion to order it for trial (explaining why they can't appear in person). Then you need to sort it out with the trial coordinator's...

I wouldn't worry about being so formal in considering the 14C. Justices don't expect self represented parties to have 'confirmed all matters'. The time allotments are just guesses so the clerks and...
