What is the purpose of the hearing tomorrow?
Customer: replied 10 months 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

Expert:  Lucy, Esq. replied 10 months ago.
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.
