I live in Connecticut and my husband moved to North Carolina 18 months ago. He filed an uncontested divorce from there and the divorce hearing date is August 27, 2010. My husband chose the date knowing that is the day our son is going to college and needs to be dropped off for his freshman year in CT, and hence it would be difficult for me to be there. He says he does not want me to be present at the hearing!
I am trying to get a continuance for the divorce hearing date and it is very difficult doing that in CT. The Wake county court either tells me I do not have the right to change the date as the Defendant, or I have to be physically present to change the date. How can I do it from CT, without being physically present? Can it be done over the phone or is there a form that I can fill out? If not, is my only choice to drive down there to change the date? Can I be sure that I can change the date if I drive down?
