Help! help! help!

Does not sound right but, you may need to provide more info. Did you have a current address on file with the courts? Did you have your Tmp hearing? The apposing attorney is required to serve any documents to you and the courts are required to nofify you of any scheduled hearings or rulings. I would go to the clerks office at the courthouse and find out why you did not recieve notice and what you can do to appeal. If you can appeal. Keep in mind, that courts show no respect for Pro Se litigants.



Dear bohica,

It sounds to me like there was a court hearing and you somehow did not attend. Without more information it is hard to answer your question.

The response posted above is based upon the limited factual information made available and is not intended as a full and complete response to the question. The only reliable manner to obtain complete and adequate legal advice is to consult with an attorney, fully explain your situation, and allow the attorney sufficient opportunity to research the applicable law and facts required to render an accurate opinion. The basic information provided above is intended as a public service but a full discussion with an attorney should be undertaken before taking any action.

I am representing myself. The Court heard a motion brought by my ex. I filed my own motion/answer and was present in Court. I received the ORDER in the mail—signed, sealed, and delivered and NEVER received notification of the rulings made! Is this right? Can the opposing party just write the ORDER and the judge sign it without me ever even seeing the rulings???
