My mother has been trying desperately to have a Final Hearing. Both she and her estranged husband are in poor health, but we have been trying since 2008 to get this matter settled. Every time a Court date draws near, here is what happens:
Her estranged husband quits taking his meds and winds up in the hospital. Court postponed and rescheduled for 4 to 6 months later.
He requested a change of venue which took over 6 months to reschedule one time.
One Court date, the lawyer supposedly had car trouble plus a non-working cell phone and could not attend Court. Yeah, right.
Now, the estranged husband has once again stopped taking his meds and is in the hospital with Court scheduled for next Thursday. It’s not going to happen…AGAIN.
With all of these delays and rescheduling of Court and the fact that both my mother and her estranged husband are in poor health, what on earth are we to do about this? It appears a final hearing will NEVER take place. Is there anything at all we can do to get this matter settled? Her estranged husband has no intention of ever going to Court and will NOT settle out of Court! Can this matter be settled after death? Looks like that is what we are going to have to do!
