Good evening, my name is Brandon. In which state did this occur?
Thank you. Two motions were filed -- has the same hearing date been set for both motions?
Well, anyone can accuse anyone else of anything. If one party believes that the other is unfit as a parent, they can present their allegations to the court. However, allegations without proof don't amount to anything. I should also add that it's not necessarily a problem for a parent to drink alcohol in the presence of their child -- the question is normally not whether the parent was drinking, but whether the parent's ability to care for her child was compromised from the drinking.
Does that make sense?
Ok, so it seems that we're missing some of the details, so I can't say how the court will treat this specific case, but what I can tell you is that when you have these sorts of conflicting motions, the court usually prefers to consolidate the motions so that everything can be settled at one hearing. If the parties reach agreement before the hearing, there's no reason that they have to appear for the court to resolve their dispute.
"Why does a court document say if he suspects be legal?" I do apologize, but I'm not understanding the question. Could you please rephrase?
Ok, I think that I understand the situation better. But I'm still not understanding the question (sorry).
I'm unclear on why he didn't get a date for his motion! Frankly, if there's no date, the court can't make a decision on a motion. Either you weren't properly served notice, the court made a mistake, or we are missing another piece of information. You're sure that what he filed was a motion, right?
"He hasn't done anything with it" usually means that it hasn't been filed--the motion is drafted, but not submitted to the court. It's entirely possible that he did it just to upset you.
Sorry for the delay! I hope that you received my response.
