Ex and I had a final hearing on Child Custody (his motion to modify) on 06/05 and he choose not to appear - case was dismissed, but the judge held my claim for attorney fees open until I could obtain an affidavit from my atty (I terminated him before the final hearing). I finally received the Affadavit, but I read the local rules (Mecklenburg) which state the hearing on the claim should not exceed 60 days afte the hearing (which would be 8/6) and I doubt I can get a hearing that quickly.
Stupid filed another Motion for Visitation just 20 days later. You advised me to file Motion for Sanctions Under Rule 11, which I have drafted.
On the Rule 11, request for sanctions, I have requested reimbursement of my costs, which will be minimal since I’m representing myself. Though this is a separate action, can I include the attorney fees from the first action as a request for sanctions?
Am I just out on the claim for attorney fees?
