My question involves a marriage in the state of: OHIO
Hello. I was wondering what you thoughts were on missing a divorce court date?
My wife retained a lawyer and I received a court date 2 months ago. I received a court date in the mail. She then told me that she retained a lawyer just "to scare me" and right after that the court date was rescheduled for some reason? I admit I made the mistake in not getting a lawyer at that time; I am filling out paperwork right now to retain one. Also another reminder came in the mail that she hid from me so this also made me think she was having second thoughts.
So I find out that today was an actual court date! I received nothing from the clerk of courts telling me this and I have no lawyer that would have told me this.
I was not able to make it to court today..
(Besides everyone telling me what an idiot I am for not having a lawyer by now, but you have to realize this wasnt what I wanted and I was under the impression that she was dropping the case.)
I will get with a lawyer ASAP (tomorrow) but I was just wondering how you might think the court look at this? All I can do is be honest. No kids involved just property.
I'm in the dark about these things until I consult my attorney just wanted to see if anyone has to say about this.
