I called scheduler Tuesdy AM and she informed me that next date for status is 5/8.
Nothing has been signed. No custody issues. The only issue is splitting assets which far exceed liabilities.
It is a dissolution of marriage she filed.
Is there an opportunity to appeal? What does "letter of opinion" mean vs a ruling?
My wife has all assets frozen so I live on ss and credit cards and cannot afford an attorney. Already underwater on credit. I'm also a disabled Vietnam veteran.
When should I expect an answer?
When should I expect to hear from ILLinois expert?
Is someone working on my request?

Thanks for your reply. According to wife's attorney the judge will issue a "letter of opinion" on 5/8 appearance. Is that different than what you outlined?
What if I cannot get a letter from my dentist prior to court?
Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX to get it before I leave for Chicago from Atlanta tomorrow or maybe he can fax it to my hotel before 9:25 AM appearance.
I'd like to schedule a follow up appointment with PaulMJD on May 6th, 2013 at 10:30 am Eastern Standard Time.
I am confused... My memory says, no I did not make an appt. for 10:30 today. I did get a phone call from Penny from your service about 1 hour ago and we set up an appt. with you for 10:30 AM tomorrow, 05/07/2013.
Help me understand what is going on!
OK, I am a bit hyper now. Not what I wanted to be dealing with at 68 from a lying, cheating wife that seems to have no remorse. Such is life...Huh?
Thanks Paul, it is consolation. I am tired and hitting the sack. I'll pick up this nightmare tomorrow AM.
