Q: Can I file a motion or modification
So I'mma the defendant in the middle of a divorce im also pro se. We have recently had our case management conference.
During court we realized that the plaintiff had not fully turned in her answers to my interrogatories so the judge extended her due date for 3 more days making it March 29th she has yet to do turn them in and in fact ask me for another week am I able to file a motion for contempt or something
A: Filing anything and getting a hearing would take much longer than a week, so you probably should give her another week. However, do it in writing and ask for a written acknowledgement and agreement. If she doesnt comply your remedy is not contempt, but a motion to compel and for fees if you had to hire an attorney, which is what you should probably have done.
