Had a court date today for trial, apparently opposing counsel felt he needed more time to prepare for a trial after his client felt he wasn't adequately prepared after she had to change attorneys through no fault of her own. Judge scolded both parties and issued a temp order that changes albeit slightly parenting time. I expressed to my lawyer that I objected and was highly upset judge would even consider changing anything when we were supposed to start direct examination that day and instead took no testimony. My 18b lawyer said she doesn't believe it's possible to appeal a temp order but the order itself says appeal must be within 30 days.
Technically you can appeal it, but realistically you won't have a decision before it's mooted by the trial, and getting a stay is not likely. The language about an appeal is standard, and is printed on every Family Court order. If the change is only slight, why are you so upset?
As for the adjournment, if your lawyer wanted more time to prepare, would you begrudge that to her?
