Hello,

Welcome. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will do whatever I can to answer your questions!

All motions must conform to the time requirements of K.S.A. 60 206 unless the Presiding Judge approves an expedited hearing. K.S.A. 60 206 requires 5 days notice.

I would be glad to respond to any related follow-up questions that you may have.

ok, what do i need to do to show that i was not given the 5 day notice? he literally handed me the papers friday night at 6:30pm and its for this Monday at 9:30 am

If you are not represented by counsel, typically the procedure would be to go to the hearing in order to avoid a default. At the hearing you can ask the judge for a continuance. Tell the judge that you were served on Friday night and had not had the opportunity to retain counsel

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
