Hello and thank you for your question.
Going down in person is an excellent idea. There is no reason they cannot assist you with the information.
Please let us know if you have any additional; questions for me.
this question was for 5starlaw who has been helping me with this for a while. I went through her site and didn't get her. The "Hi it's Mike" could have tipped you off. The whole tone is much more informal than a first question to an unknown person. I am a prominent Psychologist, in the field for over 40 years, and know what I am talking about
And going down in person is not an excellent idea. It is two hours of traveling and no guarantee I won't get that nasty clerk who loves saying no. I indicated that I got it over the phone last week. Why should I give up so quickly. The solution I proposed needs to be tried a few times.
Think woman!! You dashed off a quick, cut and dried answer without carefully thinking about what I wrote and why for a dozen reasons going down to court might not be a good idea (i.e. lost work, health issues.
First let me apologize for taking 5stars question. I saw no indication that you made a specific request for an attorney or I would never have taken the question. Secondly, I read your previous questions before responding.
Depending on who you get to answer the phone at the clerk's office can make a massive difference on the information you are able to garner. I have been a practicing lawyer in 2 States for 24 years and I know how it works.
If a Judge has been appointed you should call the clerk or secretary for the Judge.
Otherwise if you are not able to gain the information over the phone and do not want to risk missing a court date you may need to check in person.
I will opt out and request 5 star and again I apologize for not knowing that you requested an attorney. A great deal of our customers begin their questions by saying "this is John" or "Hi its Jim" so we normally do not make assumptions based on informality and try to answer all questions.
Again sorry for confusion I caused.
