Default Whats Next?

On January 27th I had my preliminary court appearance at which time I was given until 18 Feb to complete my Form 10, Form 35.1 and 13.1. I relieved my lawyer after that because he had all the info submitted to him in enough time to have had them complete before the 27th of Jan. I have decided after having paid a lawyer a lot of money to have really nothing to show for it I would go it alone and represent myself. On 18 Feb I submitted all of the above mentioned forms as well as a professional assessment of our matrimonial home done by a professional appraiser that we had agreed on back on 27 Jan. My Ex unhappy with his assessment of the house asked to have 2 independent real-estate agents do a second and third opinion of it. One of the real-estate agents is a friend of mine and when she was here to do her appraisal told me we are going back to court, as she was told by my EX on the 16 of May. My question here is, if their is a new court date set how come I don't know about it. Will I be served with this info by her Lawyer? If yes must she do it in a certain amount of time after receiving the date herself? Or am I responsible myself to go to the courthouse and ask the clerk the set date for us to go back. fficeffice" />>>

A real esate agent's opinion doesn't carry nearly as much weight as a professional assessment. And your real estate agent friend would hardly seem to be independant.

Your ex is required to serve you if there is another court date.

Yes I mentioned that to her Lawyer but my EX insisted on having a second and third opinion.
No, the real-estate agent was not very independent. But they were picked by her not me.
If she does have a date how quickly does she have to serve me after receiving that date? I am by no means making myself unavailable to her and her Lawyer.

Something I've seen done was to have "his" agent assess and "her" agent assess, and take the average. You really can't beat a professional appraisal though.

Cheers!
