Family Law Questions? Ask a Family Lawyer Online.
Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.
Can I ask my attorney to have the date moved up earlier?
Yes, your attorney would just file a motion to advance the matter on the docket. Pushing this out to Feb of 2017 seems like a very long time to wait for this and I suspect that your ex may be doing this simply to annoy you and delay the proceedings just to be irritating.
Your attorney can file the motion and it should be heard on the judge's next motion hour, which is typically once a week in bigger cities, or once every couple weeks in smaller ones..
