My ex husbands attorney and I have been slowly going back

My ex husbands attorney and I have been slowly going back and forth on an agreement for a revised parenting plan. I just received an email from his attorney stating that a trial date has been set for one week from now. My question is, do I respond/file my purposed parenting plans and/or a declaration and how long do I have to do that if so? Also, why would it be set for a trial and not a normal hearing?JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: WashingtonJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: His attorney served me papers about a year ago and then wanted to settle outside of court. Also about two months ago he tried filing a contempt order on me but then withdrew it.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I don't think so.

Child Support question. At the time of divorce I had five

Child Support question. At the time of divorce I had five children below the age of 18. My CS was $1340 Per month. Today only two children remain as minors. The Others have all graduated HS and are in college or careers. I have alway known i could reduce my CS but have continued to pay the same amount until this year where i hope reduce it. Can i simple adjust the original amount as it was 1340 divided by 5 equals 268 per child. can i simply reduce it to 536 now that the other children are above 18? My income is about what it was at the beginning. I have live a life of sacriface , living without stuff and am considering buying a house but i need to free up some money.JA: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Bay county Florida.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Only the original divorce judgment.

I filed a motion 10 months ago and because my lawyer said I

I filed a motion 10 months ago and because my lawyer said I could provide the documentation during oral arguments, we were basically annihilated. So now I have refiled as pro se. The return is in 3 weeks. I just heard from opposing counsel who said she just returned from vacation and could I agree to a two week adjournment. My question is: Is it reasonable to say no to an extension? I know that courts almost do this automatically but this lawyer has been unbelievably nasty and personal. They have already responded to this motion before and the biggest difference this time is that I have provided the documentation...Thanks

I am a teacher that was accused of sexually abusing a

Hi! I am a teacher that was accused of sexually abusing a student of mine back in June. Unfortunately the police coerced a statement out of me. Today my attorney made motions to have the statement suppressed, by the way, we are in New York State. The police felt there would be more victims; however, there are none. I have 11 charges against me. I have never been in trouble with the law, thus I was released under supervision. My lawyer feels that if a plea is made by the district attorney, which there has not been one up to this point, it would include prison time. He also said that if we go to jury trial and I am found guilty, I would face much more time than if I took the plea...my question is (as this is my first time ever being in the legal system, like I said) is this my attorney just giving worst case scenario? He did say that the police did let me go with no bail, etc. and released me under supervision...I have been teaching for 15 years as a Special Education Teacher and never had any accusations up to this point...so I am scared to death.JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when did this happen?Customer: New York State, June 2016JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Such as?JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No.

liams case for non-return of rent. Defendant didnt show up. Her daughter answered roll "for the court". As the case is being adjourned I point out that it is not the defendant but her daugheter, who admits not having power of attorney.
