how order to show cause are decided ?
« on: Jan 15, 2005, 08:00:53 PM »
I have to go to court in 2-3 weeks as my ex filed an order to show cause against me.

I am wondering how the court decide these?
what are the criteria to define if there is "cause" to hold me in contempt and deny or approve ex motion's ???/

Also the referee we'll have is a long time lawyer in a big firm that became a referee last november.
Can I expect her to be "by the book" as she is new to the referee role or totally biaised ?

She is an American Indian (origins) and I am wondering what American Indians think about dads ??? do they think a young kid need a dad only for it's child support or do they think that both parents should have 50/50 ?!?!?

Based on the evidence.

Spinner, do a search on Soc's section because he's talked about this before and the 3 bits of criteria to be used.

As for the American Indian stuff.....let's not go there as a whole.  It's not right to judge a person by their skin, ethnic origin, or whatever, period.

Let's pray that it's fair.

About the referee/Judge?  Again, who knows -- and it's not right to go there either.

Are there crooked judges?  Yep.  Are there honest judges?  Yep.  C'mon.....
