The letter from the court is addressed to my ex-husband and cc'd to me. We have been divorced for 8 years. Do I have a right to know what this is about prior to the hearing? Am I being sued? We live in Maine.
It sounds like your ex filed a post-judgment motion. You should have been served with the motion either by mail or in hand by a sheriff. You can call the court and find out what he filed and go to the court and ask for a copy. Once you know what he filed, you should speak with a licensed family law attorney in your area to determine what you can reasonably expect, and how best to move forward. Regardless of whether you hire an attorney, you should definitely appear for the pretrial or status conference.See question

A court order controls unless parties agree otherwise, or a new order is in place. You need to ask the court for an emergency hearing on contact asap. At that hearing you need to explain the contact schedule that has been in place for the past two years and ask the court to issue an interim order that states the 50/50 contact continues until a final hearing can be held on your motion to modify. If you are able to retain counsel, you should contact an experienced family law attorney in your area to represent you for your case.See question
