Sorry to say but you got at least a year to go before all matters are resolve,(E/D,Custody,and Divorce) all are three seperate court dates unless agreements can be made by you and ex.So be prepared to put at least 1 years of your life on hold
I am filing for divorce and full custody of my two children and also temporary custody until the full hearing. My laywer served my wife with the papers but stated that there is no hearing date set yet until we get a response from my wife and that she then has 30 days to reply or extend for another 30 days. I was under the impression that first you got the hearing date and then you served the other person. If not, then why?
