I had filed an RFO and recieved a court date in regards to an adjustment of my current child custody order. The other party works in the court house and called and told the court clerk that there was a stipulation and that they could take my RFO off calendar. Without calling me to verify they removed this off calendar and now I have to wait for a new court date. It seems like there should be some consequences for lying to the courts to remove the other parties RFO, is there anything I can do?
I agree. There should be consequences. Both Only for your ex but also for the clerk. Bring it to the attention of the judge
The moving party (the party who filed the RFO) is the only one who can voluntarily drop the matter from calendar.
So refile and reserve the RFO (absent an agreement to resolve the dispute) In your RFO, include a declaration about what happened and seek appropriate sanctions, if any, for this chicanery.
