2 different court dates? or am I wrong

I’m very scared about the date set for the motion to intervene. I will not have a lawyer by then. I’m trying to save up my money but it will take awhile. If I don’t have a lawyer by then and the judge not only grants the motion to intervene but also decides to try the case then, then I’ll lose. This is why I’m hoping there is two different dates.

The date set for the motion to intervene is the first court date. If the motion is permitted there will be future court dates regarding the merits of the motion to intervene.

In order to deny the motion to intervene you would have to prove that there is no reason for them to be included in the action and that they do not have interest in custody of your child. You need to prove that you are acting consistent with your constitutionally protected status as a parent.

When a motion to intervene is filed and a date is set, and it comes along with the Intervenor’s Complaint, is it two seperate dates?

For example, does this mean that when the motion to intervene is brought to court, the judge has to sign off on whether to allow the intervenor to intervene, and then a new court date is set for the intervenor’s complaints and testimony and etc to be heard, in trial?

And how do you attempt to argue against a motion to intervene? What should one say to try to get the judge to refuse to grant the motion?
