That is correct.
That is correct
I am confused by both of your answers. According to what other people have told me and things I have read you have either 10 days or 30 days to ask for reconsideration. If that is wrong good but where can I find this for sure.
The judge denied the continuation request and went on to have the hearing without me there. Decided against me obviously with biased information. So is the case considered over? How can it be over if one party feels it has not been heard.
Just to verify, I will file a motion to reconsider the judgement along with reconsidering the denial of continuation. I assume I present this request to the judge that made the decision.
If he responds against me again, I can then appeal both issues.
If I get a negative response, I can then file a motion for a new trial?
If this is correct so far would I be able to request a different judge?
Can you direct me to an ex of one so I'll get the format right?
I'm not sure how this works. Do I get a certain number of questions each time? If I get back to you tommorrow, do I pay again?
Thanks for your help. I appreciate getting that cleared up.
I am still just a little confused. I understand you think it best that I file a motion for reconsideration on the denial of my request not to close the case. At this time would I also be filing a request to reconsider for the denial of a continuance? If so should they be done separately or in a document together? If I don't like the decision, do I have 30 days to appeal?
It seems that I am suppose to prove the decision was wrong and I have to do that without a hearing? This does not seem right. Why didn't we have a hearing without me there to begin with?
Not sure what you mean by setting.
I objected to the statement of accounts the lawyer had drawn up.
I was notified of a hearing date. I live in a different state and had another scheduled appointment of importance so I asked for a continuation.
The continuation request was denied and at the same time on the same document denied my request for a hearing and overruled objections to the statement aaccounts
I never had a hearing and by the way, did not have the opportunity to be heard considering the hearing was scheduled when I could not go.
I certainly understand what you are saying and I do believe you. BUT I want to give it a try. The reason partly has to do with miscommunication on the part of the judge. Maybe not. But for practical purposes, let's say there is a reason. What is the best way for me to present it to the judge? You said separate points. Would it simply be an additional Point in the
Motion to Reconsider the judgement overruling objections in statement of account
Motion to Reconsider the judgement denying request for continuation
Motion to Reconsider the judgment to overrule objections in statement of account and to reconsider the judgment denying requested continuance.
