Hi,

My name is XXXXX XXXXX I'd be happy to answer your questions today.

I'm sorry, but I don't see any other questions associated with your user ID. Can you give me a little more information about your situation? What is the court date for? What do you want to ask the judge about a leave?

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

he says he cannot pay child support beacause he is not wroking at the moment. i have to take off from wrk every month just to appear at court. bt i cant do this no after tomorrow cuz im leaving to bangladesh. i was suppose to go with my parents this oct bt i had a court date

Thank you for clarifying that.

You will have to go to the hearing tomorrow, because it's too late to reschedule. However, you can tell the judge at the hearing that you will be out of the country for two months and ask him to reschedule the next hearing for after your return. It is much easier to make the request while standing in front of him than to try to have the court date moved later.

When he goes to schedule the next hearing, you're allowed to say "Excuse me, your Honor!" to get his attention and explain that you won't be available for the next two months.
