I have a hearing next week with my ex wife and her attorney. It is for a couple different things, but my question is whether or not there is a formal procedure for a hearing. I ask because I was informed that my ex's attorney sent a subpoena to ...
You have to file a motion to quash an improper subpoena, otherwise if it's not quashed, it stands. Maybe they did serve notice, to the address they have for you on file (And since then, you've moved) - if so, it happens.
Since you are pro se, and the other side isn't, you're like the one-legged man in a butt kicking contest. Here's my advice, at least TALK to a lawyer tomorrow so you know what could happen next week, and how bad (or good, but since it's family court, let's face it, it's mostly bad) it can get. We know how to run a hearing, you're just winging it - use any advantage you can get.
Best of luck.See question

My ex wife decided to move my children without my permission. She was traveling around, and did not re enroll them in school. They are 13 and 14. We agreed it would be best if they came to live with me. She is currently in North Carolina and I am ...
At this stage, 510(a) modifications (That's the section that deals with changing child support) are only for SUBSEQUENT installments. There's some caselaw that gives some pre-service retroactive exceptions involving change in possession, but judge's seem loath to follow it whenever I argue for it. Good chance mom will agree to zero out future obligations, where it gets tricky is if you ask her to pay money. We have a new child support law going into effect in July, so perhaps review your case with an attorney for specific guidance.See question

Court CAN'T if it finds he's unable to pay, or refuses to pay. Indirect Civil Contempt is a sanction, not punishment.See question

You state you have an attorney. We can't advise people who are represented. You'll need to discuss this with your attorney.See question
I need to have the same rights over my daughter. Can I postpone the divorce until I finish paying my custody lawyer?
It either settles, or both you and the other side pay thousands (or more) to set the cause for trial.See question
Had an attorney for 18 months, case seemed stagnant. Racked up legal fees while ex was not paying child support. Said attorney withdrew from the case on the 24th of March. Apparently there was a status date of April 5th and an order to reduce supp...
Something doesn't make sense. If the withdrawal was done on March 24th, and no appearance was filed, then technically nothing substantive was supposed to be done for 21 days thereafter. HOWEVER, if an error was made, you can't sit on your hands - you have to timely (ie, RIGHT NOW) file a motion addressing the issue. Talk to a family law attorney in your area for specific guidance.See question
