What happened is that postponed a hearing to hire a lawyer for my southern California hearing where I had to travel all the way up from northern California . so i got my lawyer , spent all that money on him and on my travel to southern California , spent the whole day at the hearing just to have the judge transfer the case to my local city for the jurisdiction ! ! ! ! The reason he did that is because I had one T . R . O . against my ex my city tomorrow and he had one on me far away for which I traveled there . So now that we are both having the case finally heard tomorrow , I was wondering if I can request for a continuance for both cases . . . for the first time my T . R . O . against him as a plaintiff and the second continuance for his own hearing where I requested over the phone to arrange my earlier
You are asking too many questions and your sentence is a run on sentence. Next time please ask one question at a time, so we know what you are talking about. Also, it appears that you are not happy with theater that you have and you talk to. Now you want other lawyers whom you have never met guide you.
I think I got the gist of it. Two mirror cases filed by you and your ex against each other are finally scheduled to be heard tomorrow. Your Dad is flying overseas do to the sudden death of your grandmother (his mother I presume) and was supposed to be an important witness for your side of the case(s). If you have counsel make these circumstances known to him/her and they will seek a postponement. If you are not represented you will have to make the request yourself. Don't be late and be humble in your request. It may or may not be granted. If denied the only thing you can do is your best under the circumstances. Good luck.
