I am not ready to fork out thousands of dollars to file for a motion for new trial if the judge won't allow it. The judge has not liked me since the beginning and I am worried that she will not grant the motion. What advice can you all give me? How likely is it that the judge will grant the motion? Thank you.This is for a child custody/ divorce case. I was defaulted due to not making it to the court house on time for court. I tried to get trial by phone and the opposing attorney would not allow it.
