NYS FAMILY COURT I petitioned in 9/12 for violation of child support and modification of the child support order. Initial appearance was suppose to be in Oct '12 , ex got lawyer so I retained lawyer (she sent in notice of appearance) his attorney rescheduled court the day before we were suppose to appear, new court date December '12, then my lawyer requested to reschedule again just a few days prior that Dec '12 court date, now court set for this Tuesday. I received an EMAIL Weds night 1/30 that she is withdrawing . Again, I have to be in court this Tuesday 2/5. I received her file with my paperwork (and her notations) in the mail on Fri 2/1. I called court and they hadn't received anything from her yet as of 1p Friday. What can I expect Tues in court? Never been in court ever.Went to court. Made to answer some questions even when I said I wanted to seek new counsel. I had to say what I was there for and what I expected to get out of coming to court. I had to decide to get another initial appearance on the records or a hearing. I said hearing. Then given a date and told that when looking for new counsel I needed to be sure they could attend that date because they do not reschedule or adjourn a hearing. Seriously, I have to base my choice of representation on who is available on that day. I don't even feel I should have had to talk since I had no attorney present and it was not my fault. My attorney that withdrew notified the court by email at 1051p the next before court. The other side didn't even know ahead of time I don't think. Any suggestions? Comments on what happened. Fair???
