    Answered . there is a lot of discretion to the trial judge in regard to granting or denying a continuance. There are also ways to speed up the production of documents, including subpoenaing witnesses to bring documents to the trial. Also, if you try everything you can to get the documents you need, and you still can't get the documents, you may want to renew your motion for continuance showing prejudice.

    You may or may not be able to get the judge to recuse him or herself. However, adverse rulings are not grounds for recusal.

    At this point in time, I would rely much more on the advice given by the attorney you have hired than anything you read on the Internet, or hear from friends. Divorce cases are very fact intensive, and while sites like Avvo are very useful, they only provide general information and education, not legal advice.

    The above is for informational and educational purposes only, does not establish an attorney client relationship,... more

    Answered . You need to discuss these questions with your attorney. He is in a much better position to answer them.

    My answer to your question does not create an attorney-client relationship.
