Thanks. I assume there are enought time (a month from now) to subpoena them. I assume they are obligated. What is some of them cite reason like sick? Do they have to show in person? Also, will the plaintiff and defendant be at the hearing in person as well? Could the defendant use any reason such as sickness to change the hearing date? By the way, I should assume this is the only hearing to prepare all document, witness not a FIRST hearing. right?
Just one more quick clearance.
Per the last sentence of your response, if this hearing is only about default judgement and no witness required, then my attorney does not subpoena the wintess (i.e. the doctor and investigator) and have them appear in court. Or I need to clarify what the hearing about. As far as I know, this hearing is scheduled due to defendant's motion of "not proper served". I may be focus on collecting the service document
(sheriff, special baliffs and warning order attorney) to prove the service appropriate. If this is what about then the wintness will be sheriff, speical bailiff and warning order attorney, not doctor/government investigator. I heard even if the services were done correctly, it is still up to judge to decide rule as default judgement or not. If not, then
further witness for prove of fraud etc will be in next hearing. I may need to clarify this from court, right?
