Dear Customer, thank you for choosing Just Answer. There are rules for timing of hearings in the US. The rules in Ohio State Court can be found here (these are the complete rules for your reference in your matter: http://www.supremecourt.ohio.gov/LegalResources/Rules/civil/CivilProcedure.pdf). A written motion must be served on all parties a minimum of seven days prior to the scheduled hearing date (Rule 6C).
For your upcoming hearing, you may be able to appear telephonically. Check with the Court Clerk's office and see if you can arrange this service (many attorneys appear telephonically in the US for different hearings only a few miles away depending on what the Court will allow.
I hope the above is helpful, I wish you the best of luck with this motion. If you have any questions please let me know. Best regards, Bill.
Thanks for your response - are there rules saying how a court order need to be served to me - in this case, a copy has been forwarded by email to me and also by normal mail - here in Europe it has to be served to you personally and you have to sign for receipt of ref court order.?? b.rgds Jan Hougaard
When reading rule 4.5 in ref PDF file, its states that if the person is located in a foreign country, a court order has to be served in personal and has to be signed for, unless I have been reading the text incorrectly ???
