We had a hearing on visitation 02/15. Judge’s ruling was fabulous. I was very happy.
Ex’s attorney was to draft the Order. After much proding from me, he finally submitted the draft to me. Many things were wrong about it. Several things the Judge ordered were left out and other things were added.
I submitted changes to the draft to opposing counsel (I’m Pro Se). I emailed him for weeks to determine the status and he never responded to me. When I was to the point of filing a Motion for Judicial Assistance, I finally received a letter from opposing counsel. He submitted the Order as they wanted it to be, made only three of the changes I requested (minor changes) and included a copy of my email to opposing counsel regarding the other changes I requested.
I’ve been waiting to hear from the Judge. On Friday, I received a copy of the Order with the judge’s signature - exactly as it was submitted to her. There was no contact or discussion regarding the changes I requested.
As I stated, there are things missing from the Order that the Judge stated in her ruling and there are items included that were never discussed in our hearing.
In addition, there was a provision on our Temporary Visitation Order that my ex was not allowed to leave the children in the care of his elderly (80+) parents. This was not discussed at the final hearing. I assumed (I guess erroneously) that it would be included in the final Order. Besides the other mistakes in the Order, I believe this is important to make certain is included in the permanent Order.
File a Motion to Amend the Order and list the items I believe need be amended and why
File a Motion for Relief from Judgment Pursuant to Rule 60?
