What will the judge hear?
« on: Feb 06, 2007, 10:21:01 AM »
My court date is 2/22.  My attorney filed for a modification of my parenting time.  My ex will not be represented.  I am NCP and we share legal custody.  

My attorney tells me we have about 20 minutes in front of the judge.  My ex is a bit hot headed and any time she disagrees with me she says ā€œIā€™m brining this up in court!ā€  Some examples of issues are, child care costs and the way I discipline our children.

1.  Will the judge hear testimony on issues not submitted before the court date?

2.  Would my ex have to request a seperate court date to address her issues?

Thanks!

Issues related to custody: yes, but subject to a request for a continuance, if the evidence is too difficult for you to meat with out preparation. Unrelated issues: no.

See above.
