My Prior attorney persuaded me that the GM would be beneficial since the docket was full and we needed resolution quickly. Now that attorney withdrew, I am stuck w G. Magistrate and since I am pro se and the Respondent has an attorney, Even though he has failed at every turn to never comply with any court order, and the motion is for contempt of child support, compel and sanctions. The GM allows his attorney to make decisions on my case! I just had the JA reset the hearing while the Opposing attorney made her best efforts to "CANCEL" my motions! they agreed! But luckily I came back quickly and refused to mediate without discovery, therefore they set a completely different hearing all together, not the motion for contempt , sanctions ect... I am curious if I can now have 10 days to object to this G.Magistrate that will rule in Respondents Attorneys favor?
Also I am seeking a Family Lawyer that is reasonable.
We cannot accept cases or make recommendations on AvvoJD
Redirecting to the family section of AvvoJD
Once a case is referred to the general magistrate all parties have 10 days to object. Once it goes past the general magistrate the GM has the case until the end. If you do not agree with a recommendation of the GM you can file an exception to be heard by a judge. However once the objection is resolved the case goes back before the GM.
You can use the find a lawyer feature of this site to search for family lawyers in your area. Good luck.
