The judge postponed the original date. I sent letters to both judge and petitioners counsel requesring either an earlier or later date with copies of flights and hotel confirmations made almost a year in advance. I have heard nothing. I pay my ordered support and all extras for the children without fail.
One last question, can I find a template to follow to write up my motion?.Unfortunately the other party does not agree to postponement and never would agree. It's a very difficult matter and because I have been in court for several years even though we were never married and support my children, I can no longer afford the legal fees.
