I filed motion in the cause due to unemployment pursuant to NC G.S. 50-13.7 and 50-16.9 and Rule 60. I fired my attorney in Novemenber after repeated failure to file custody timely and handle my case. So I appeared pro se, I am unemployed and Judge denied my motion. I don’t understand that. I have been erratic with PSS pymts due to losing job last year and only able to get a contract for 4 months after that. I did not put on evidence properly or have my financials there but isn’t unemployment a substantial change under the statute? I am only looking for relief until I get a job. I can’t afford and attorney either and I filed custody modify too, ex-spouse is pain med addict.
Other than being an idiot without a lawyer, I’m a smart guy but you know, NOT a lawyer. Evidence, procedures, what to say, what to presen,t is the juris doctors job.
Can I appeal judge denial? Then what to do to prepare for alimony. PSS and custody temporary. ED already decided and split, divorce based on 1 year sep will be final this coming Friday. Ex-spouse is addict, anger issues, has had finding of domestic violence. I had 2 restraining orders, first one resolved by 6 month consent order if she got help…she did not complete ters but I did not drag her back to court unfortunately. What info do I need to collect abou her spending, anger, destruction of items, domestic violence, treatment of me, lack of working.
Thanks…and if any oof you guys can take my case without a retainer or maybe less than usual, I can do all the prep work and bring the pleadings and do the timeline and collate the docs and form a narrative. Then you can formulate approach… I just need a quarterback in there.
