I have an OSC hearing for Joint Custody and a dispute over School Districts in less than one week. When I originally filed the OSC, I was uneducated and rushed, my intent was that the OSC was going to be a quick and temporary fix almost like an Ex Parte filing. After I came to understand the more permanent nature of the orders, I drafted what I consider to be an extremely solid Supplemental Declaration in support of my requests. Problem is, I will be filing it tomorrow which only gives 2 court days (plus weekend) notice before our hearing. I've read that for these Supplementals it can be filed 5 days out, 3 days out, or even the day of the hearing (by the self help desk clerks). I am afraid counsel will auto-object to my filing that has extremely strong facts enclosed. What can I expect?Additional notes: If objected to, this will be coming from a party who has shown disregard for the judicial process at every step of procedure. They ignored documentation requests from Child Support Services. They never filed any response whatsoever to the OSC. They have thus far failed to respond whatsoever to my discovery requests (48hrs pending). I also believe they intend to request a continuance at the hearing (for reasons I cannot possibly fathom and will be very interested to hear). Will this pattern of abuse weigh in my favor? I have responded timely thus far to all requests. I read about the loosness and lattidute afforded in Family Law which is then amplified when including pro pers. However they are represented and I am not. What might I want argue before the judge to have my Decclaration accepted and acted upon that morning? Thanks.
