Divorce/Family Law

My attorneys told me today that my husbands' attorney had a heartattack & my OSC next Mon. will probably result in a continuance. Furthermore since husband will not pay my attorneys now they are finished w/my case. I am practically destitute paying months of (unknown) unpaid bills and taking care of 1 minor child & 1 full time student--------Can't temporary support be ordered by the judge anyway? I'm afraid my attorneys have not been upfront about this........Husband is in another state lucratively working (finally)w/a 3 yr. restraining order & will drag this out at all costs. Meanwhile he hasn't paid taxes since 2003 and we owe over $150,000. I am a teacher and only want to move on w/my life after 22 years. Husband is a registered sex offender and yet wants to continue visitation argument for minor child. Oldest 2 want nothing to do w/him. How can I have some amount of support awarded to me this next day in court regardless of the fact that his attorney will not be there and his representative is asking for a continuance?

Re: Divorce/Family Law

your attorney is right, a continuance is likely to be granted. As far as support is concerned, the court can issue temporary orders at any time - they don't have to wait until a divorce is final.

I don't know where you live, but the courthouse in Orange County has lots of literature to help people file their own paperwork and soforth, but I don't recommend you representing yourself. Child custody should never be attempted without an attorney.

I can offer an hour of my time free to help you decide what is the best way to go forward. Good luck.
