Reason for denial intitially, was awaiting completion of 52 week domestic violence class. Other than that the judge just refused to hear him at the trial, and again when he drove up 120 miles to appear before him, he just refused to let husband address this. The order is for 3 years, and was imposed in May 2012. Yes, I rely on my husband for financial, medical and emotional support. Along with transportation requirements and all my medical treatments that I have undergone including thyroidectomy in September 2012. He is my sole support.
My husband said that the second time he was refused, the judge told him it was because he appeared with me.
Are there any forms that need filing, since there are no further hearings? Because, Long Beach Court House seems to have their own rules on Ex-parte motions, ie. Be the first at the door before anyone else or be denied access to the judge, meaning he drives 120 miles to arrive at 6am to be first inside to reach the business office or be 1 of only 3 persons that will be allowed access to go before the judge, and if you're not you are turned away, without a court date and have to do it all again each time. There has to be another way to request to see the judge on an ex-parte matter, or at least be provided with a court date to appear, rather than constantly denied access. It seems unlawful, just my opinion. If you have further advice it would be appreciated. Also, what type of attorney would he be looking to retain in a matter of this nature?
Thank you for your help.

Thanks again, I feel like I have a good understanding on how to proceed with this matter.
