Court date?


At calendar call the judge decides the schedule of cases for that week, or month depending on what county you live in. It is not uncommon for the court to schedule more cases than a judge can hear in one week. It is unfortunate that you have been bumped so many times, but this is generally out of your attorney’s control.

My divorce is final and Im waiting to go to court over property and child support. I can not understand why it is so difficult to get into court. What is the deal with this calendar call? Ive been scheduled 6 times and have never had my case heard. My atty tells me that all he can do it request a block and then we sit back and see if we can get into court. In the mean time I have seen several of my friends go to court and have their case heard before mine. Its been almost 2years now. The time that I was scheduled to go my ex didnt show up because of work and then fired her atty and everything started all over again.
