I moved to Arizona from California on 7/18/16. My ex husband

I moved to Arizona from California on 7/18/16.My ex husband filed a civil suit against me in California on 6/27/16 (yes, he knew I was moving out of state on 7/18/16)I can not reach the court by phone to ask my questions...and I can't go to the courthouse to ask my questions since I'm in AZ...ugh This is where you come in.Superior Court of County of S.F. #CGC-16-552757 dated 6/27/16I responded to the suit on 7/25/16.He amended his complaint on 8/2/16.I responded to this Amended complaint on 9/28/16.I then received a 'Case Management Order' dated 11/16/16 stating that the 11/30/16 Case Management conference was canceled and that a 'Short Cause Trial' was schedule for 4/3/17 at 9:30AM in Dept. 206 (SF).I am not represented by a lawyer - I can't afford one, so I'm representing myself. My questions are as follows:1. If a Continuance is not granted, do I have to appear in court on 4/3/17?2. What happens at this 'Short Cause Trial'?3. My ex is asking when I will be responding with discovery? I don't recall getting any document asking for me to produce anything. What is he talking about here?4. Is there a way to get this case moved to Arizona since I live here?5. Should I be asking the courts for a continuance and if so, under what grounds?6. What happens if I don't show up to the 4/3/17 Short Cause Trial?

I'm in the middle of a child custody battle with my ex-wife.

Hello. I'm in the middle of a child custody battle with my ex-wife. It's a bitter and ugly mess. Anyway, to make a long story short, when I picked up my daughter on Friday (this weekend). I sat there and waited for 20 minutes. I called my daughter's cell phone, but it went to voicemail since it was turned off (battery dead?). And this happens all the time. I couldn't knock on the door, since my ex-wife told me that she doesn't want me knocking on her door or on her new husband's property. Needless to say, it's a bad situation. The only good thing is that my daughter is on my side and wants to live with me. Well, anyway, ....JA: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: IllinoisJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Yes, moment. I didn't know you'd respond so quickly. Anyway, .... when she finally came to my car, I was furious. She made me wait there so long and didn't even have her cell phone on. So I guess she charged it a bit while I was waiting. Anyway, she comes to my vehicle, gets in, we leave ... and while we are driving back to my place, she accidentally made a "Butt call" via her cell phone (to her mother) and her mother heard me yell, scream and curse at my daughter. I know this, because when I got home, my ex-wife sent me some text messages berrating me about cursing out my daughter ... and said she was going to call the police if she didn't talk to my daughter to make sure she was ok.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Moment .... So my daughter called her mother and assured her that everything was ok.
