our situation is such that we have a double restraining orders against each other and during a continuance, I was requested by the court to serve him once again with the temporary restraining order. I served him with a initial order a while ago, but this time it would be different because he has moved, so I do not know where to serve him. The day of the hearing is also the hearing against me, so the judge will be looking into this all at once that day, which means now that if he does not get served with the re-issuance of the orders, the judge will be only looking into his allegations against me while probably asking me to try to serve him after the failed attempt when he moved away. Anyways, my questions are as follows: 1) Since he will be in court that day, can I ask the judge at the endif he can ask my spouse to stay after the hearing for a bit until the clerk hands me the re-issuance of the orders, so that I can hand those to my spouse. Can I tell my spouse to hang on for a minute after the hearing or not. 2) let's say i get a continuance because I failed to serve him, does it mean that he needs to travel back again for my own t.r.o. against him assuming I successfully serve him. I'm trying to understand how this could work. I already hired a lawyer before, but the case got transferred, so I paid the old lawyer in vain basically, and can not get another one all over again. If he does not show up later on when I serve him, can the judge rule against him and grant me the orders if he was a no show...maybe this way would be better for me as it will give me chance to have the orders against him permanently as he's short of money and if he shows up for his t.r.o. against me, he will be out of funds to travel back again. What do you think.
