I had my custody trial at the end of May and on the last day of trial May 29 the judge said it would take him approximately 10 days to go through all of my evidence, his notes and witness testimony before coming to a decision. His bailiff would then notify both Pro Se parties of a hearing date for the verdict. I still haven't heard anything and then 10 days have come and gone. Should I continue to wait or is it appropriate to contact the bailiff for an update? I don't want to step on any toes at this point and cause the judge to think bad of me by me being pushy. I don't know the legality of this part of the game. I believe I did a very good job proving my case and even proving the respondent's witnesses were less than truthful and don't want to ruin anything. It's a King Co. case.
You can contact the judicial assistant or bailiff to make sure they have your correct contact information. Also you can look at the court docket online to see what has been filed so far. Link below
