  1. Ugh, sigh... You've stated you already have counsel. That bars any reputable attorney on Avvo (or anywhere else) from weighing in. We're not here to second guess other attorney's.

    Calm down, take a deep breath, and schedule an appointment with your attorney. That's what you pay them for.


  2. As stated. You are represented. Take these issues up with your attorney. Good luck.


  3. Unless I am missing something, I assume that your question does not have to do with divorce. If the court date you are asking about relates to the Order of Protection that you feel was unjustly entered against you, the court date should be on the Order of Protection itself.

    You really should take this up with your attorney. At the very least, check your court file to verify the next scheduled court date.
