My attorney filed my custody papers and my ex was served on March 10. My attorney told me that the ex had 30 days to file an answer. When that time was up, my attorney...without asking me...gave him another 30 days. He said the judge would have given the ex an extension. So here we are past the extension by 2 weeks and my ex has still not filed his papers. My attorney set a court hearing for June 25 to see if judge will go ahead and sign my papers. Can someone give me some advice on the time extension, as far as will the judge give the ex more time and if it's normal for someone to have this much time to file an answer. And what are the chances of filing on default and the judge just signing what I asked for. Oh and you can read the whole story in the thread Modifying Custody from momintn. Thank you.
