Customer Question
I had a court...

I had a court date set to determine child support and 2-3 weeks before the court date, I called numerous times with all the calls not being answered and/or returned and then I sent a request for continuation and paid to have it sent over night because I knew that we were going to need to evacuate due to Hurricane Irma and being that we lived in a flood zone so, we did evacuate but I haven't heard anything back from the court. I've read in the news that the courthouse flooded and that almost all of the cases were going to be pushed back as far as Mid October but again I haven't heard anything back from anyone. My question is should I wait to hear back from them since it's only been 2 weeks since I sent my request or should I just show up to court anyways?

Lawyer's Assistant: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

Florida

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

I filed a request for continuance but no I haven't heard anything back from anyone

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

The date I requested was October 2nd which is Monday but being that they reported in the news that most of the cases would be pushed back till Mid October and being that I haven't heard anything back should I wait to hear something or just show up?

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

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.
