My wife and I have legal custody of great niece Cacey 2 years, and parents are asking for support from my wife and I in them asking for a continuance of trial. They are getting married June supposedly, and personally I don't care what they do as long as Cacey continues to receive funds, will continuance stall the child support and would the state allow it. March 7th is the trial .
Check with a local attorney to see what your local court is likely going to do. In our county, most magistrates would consider giving a continuance if a good reason is given, but they would likely make the support order retroactive to the date the motion was filed.
You should oppose the continuance. Based on what you have written, they do not have grounds for a continuance and the odds of the hearing being continued are low. The continuance will stall the child support and the state should not allow it. Talk to your attorney about it. Good luck.
