Would denying any discovery from husband be a procedural issue? My biggest concern is a new judge. Would I get the same judge in a petition, can a new one be requested. Would filing a new divorce petition be just as expensive as the last one, asking for discovery, back to trial (I do not live in Nevada now) all the legal work would have to redone, yes? Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX hear from you. I would like to address all the lies my husband told since we only had his testimony.
We filed a motion to compel discovery and a motion to hold defendant in contempt of court order. I believe these were denied. What could have been done after that? The same motion again??? Trial was 2 weeks away. With a petition, could I be present, or am I relying on my attorney to make my case without testimony from me? Or am I allowed to attend the petition, is it in front of the judge, or does he just read it and make decision. That scares me.
I know you cannot respond to this, but it seemed very "fishy" between other counsel and judge. Nevada is famous for being corrupt. My attorney agreed, but what can be done, nothing I know.
Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX very helpful. Keep good thoughts for me, I truly deserve a fair outcome. Be well!!
