I had my case today- Thanks Erin
90% of what I brought was not allowed to be heard- my ex lawyer said since I didn’t have info to him 48 hours before That the judge could not allow my Notion to Deviate- she looked up law neither knew exact # of hrs ( How did they expect me to know?) anyway I was in his office 48 hrs before and of course he never asked me for my docs-Anyway I went with it because he too had filed a motion to deviate also I just said "I have not recieved any doc 48 hrs prior so I guess neither can deviate-"The Judge agreed -
I presented the case Authority from the other Juridiction - The other lawyer tried to block it but Judge accepted it to read but I do not think she thought it applies because it was from NY.
Believe it or not, not only did they try to get out of paying all future CS and wanted the retro lump sum but they also said that since the CS was $300 and now SS is $500 they wanted my daughter and me to pay them the $200.00 per month difference.
Anyway I am glad I went to court and Gave them a run for their money- the lawyer was surprized especially when I said that 50-13-10 was discrectionary and only referred to past arrearages which we had none" The lawyer jumped up and said who is she to interupt law for two lawyers? The Jugde replies " she is her own lawyer, she prepared this and I want to hear what she has to say" and really the time went on like that- the lawyer jumping on everyword I said but the Judge defending it-He even tried to stop me from handing in my Case Authority by saying " she didn’t give me this in advance to readover and Judge answering " she has a copy of it for you now- read it.
I recommend the Rosen on line help because I only spent $200.00 and who knows what my ex spent. The outcome was what I thought- they could not take the SS money paid to my daughter back but my-ex no longer has to pay CS.
The other Lawyer was really pushing for them to get back the 200 per month- he said it was uncharted area and he wanted to Judge to call ? Saxton?? someone like that- she agreed she would call before she entered the final order but also said she thought she would go with her findings either way. Who is that?
Anyway thank you- I know I gave you endless questions- I hope I never need to go to court again but if I do I will sign-up for on line help again- Erin Thank Mr.Rosen for making this available!
