How long for a court date?

Dear stagar:

Greetings. Mediation in Wake County usually takes about one to two months before it occurs, and I would assume it is similar for Mecklenburg County. After mediation occurs, we have to wait for an order from the mediation office prior to setting the matter on the calendar. Best of luck.

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.

Our attorney is in the process of drafting up the paperwork to serve and file with the court for full custody of my husbands two children. However, one piece of information that was not given is how long it will take to get a court date (typically) from the date the paperwork is filed with the court? The paperwork is being filed in Mecklenburg County. Does mediation happen days, weeks, or months before the court date?

Thank you,
