You would need to find out when the case was filed and then what court you are in. Normally 8 months to 1 year. As you responded, you could have trial on Monday. Best to hire a lawyer
Were you already served with the Nonagreed Child Support Order? Often when you are served with the Petition to Confirm the Nonagreed Child Support Order there is already a hearing date assigned. Examine the papers you were served very closely to make sure that is not the case. If you are unable to find a date, you can always call the Court to see if a hearing date has been scheduled.
But an even better idea would be to hire an attorney who would represent you and make sure that your interests were being protected.
If this is a case handled by the AG's office, you are likely to get some discovery requests for documents relating to your income. They will send you a notice of a trial date. You, and dozens of other cases, will all show up at the appointed time.
This is a common question. The Court does not automatically set dates. The attorneys move the cases along. If you are your own attorney. It is your job to do that. Note there is minimum notice requirement for trial settings. The Texas Rules of Civil Procedure have a forty-five day minimum. Some Courts increase the minimum up to seventy-five days. Lots of things need to happen prior to trial. Good luck.
