Quick Question
« on: May 22, 2006, 10:11:22 AM »
I have filed a motion to modify in Texas with a TRO. I have custody. We have had scheduled hearings that have been changed due to attorneys schedules.

I looked on our justice website this morning concerning our case and the following was posted:

Hearings
05/12/2006 Friday 11:00am TEMPORARY ORDER
05/22/2006 Monday 8:00am SUBMISSION
05/25/2006 Thursday 8:30am TEMPORARY RESTRAINING ORDER

Questions:
1. What is a Submission Hearing?

2. Should I have been there?

Thanks,
Aggiedad

I have no clue, truthfully.

>2. Should I have been there?

Talk to your attorney. You should have been notified.

Honestly, you are the fifth person I have talked with about this and they too have no clue.  

I have called my attorney and she is currently in court and will get back with me.  

I will let you know if she can tell me anything worh posting for your records.  

Thanks,
Aggiedad

What Submission Hearing Means
« Reply #3 on: May 22, 2006, 12:41:06 PM »
I talked with the sec. to our Judge.  She said a submission hearing is their way of keeping track with the papers that need to be signed in a timely manner.

So if something was submitted five days ago and needs to be signed by today...they post a submission for today at 8:00 a.m.  

She said that most courts do not do this, but they do.  Very INTERESTING.  I told her it scares people who do not have a clue about the legal system.  She said that she gets that often.

Thanks again for always helping out,
Aggiedad

I was gonna guess something like that -- but, it would have been just that, a guess, and you don't deserve guesses.
