Good Evening.

You have to contact the court and let them know. They should have given you conduct money to get there and if you do not go and do not advise the court you will be in contempt of a court order.

They have to pay for you to fly down and accomodation and you let the court know that you have not been given enough to come down.

I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If there is nothing further

thank you for using my services.

If I have missed anything, or you have any further questions please let me know

If there is anything else in the future please do not hesitate to ask.
