Hello. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be happy to answer your question.
I am very sorry to hear about your unfortunate situation.
1) There is no way to predict whether the judge would grant this motion, as the judge will have a lot of discretion to make a decision based on testimony
, evidence and facts presented by both sides at the court hearing when this motion will be heard before the court.
2) You should consult with your local attorney and follow your local attorney's advise very closely, on this and any other legal issues related to your case, however generally your appearance would be required, as you would have to testify before the court, but the court might allow you to testify telephonically, as long as there would be someone at your location, who is legally permitted to administer an oath.
3) Once again, this is a question that you do need to direct to your local attorney, but generally any documents that would support your position and your basis for the motion should be presented to the court.
If you are unable to appear on a specific date, your attorney might also be able to reschedule the hearing, if the court would not allow you to testify via phone.
I wish you the best of luck!
