Partner's represented by an attorney. I am not yet represented. (My reason for continuance is that I had pneumonia for 2 weeks, hospitalized for 3 days.) Partner's atty says we have to appear in order to keep the orders in place temporarily. I was told by a DV advocate that any attorney or paralegal can submit our agreement to continue without us present. I think the other attorney is lying to me about the law and process - do we need to attend Family Court for this?
