The Judge's clerk just said to report on the 20th, because it's now a contested divorce, since the defendant has chosen to answer. It was originally scheduled on the 19th under uncontested because he never supplied an answer within the given time frame.
Lucy, I really have to get this settled, I am deteriorating and afraid that I will no longer be able to care for my child.
So I shouldn't object to the Notice of Rescission and Attorney Notice of Leave Absence? Does the Attorney Notice of Leave Absence mean that his attornet represents him, but won't be in court? Or does it mean he will be out of town and wants the date to be postponed?
The Notice of Rescission I believe is due to the fact that we have a signed contract on how much he agreed to for child support. I filed that with the papaerwork.
I'm petrified of going against an Attorney, I'm even more afraid of having a an anxiety attack.
