I have been going Pro Se in the custody case with my ex’s lawyer…
Our case was heard and a temporary court order filed on Dec. 12. His lawyer had asked the court to appointed a GAL to insure compliance of a new visitation time. (I was granted a new schedule for few afternoons with my kids.)
I was notified by the GAL that there is a conflict of interests, as this GAL works in the same law firm with my ex-lawyer. (When I had some funds then.)Therefore, I had denied this GAL due to conflict of interests. (This is after the court order was filed.)
My ex’s lawyer now put in another motion filed on 28th of Dec. Asking under rules 59 & 60 that to modify the temporary court order by denying my afternoons that were granted by the temporary order. This would mean to maintain the current schedule, in which I am only seeing my children every other weekend.
- May I pick up my kids from school for the granted afternoons? Or does this GAL problem now cased for me not able to pick up the kids?
- Do I need to file a respond or reply to this new compliant/motion? If so, how would you suggest to respond this?
- If the above is yes, how do I file a reply? Take the reply to the court office? Mail another copy to my ex or his lawyer?
- What would you suggest I do in dealing this situation?
Thank you for your help!
