Q: if the supreme court has 60 days to answer all papers that were returned on 01/08/2020.what can I do to get a decision.
It's a violation on a order for in lieu of maintenance since 2012. the company that served him messed up and didn't file proof of service nor give me a copy to to do it til 3 mos later. H e and his lawyer showed up so obviously he was served, but it was not calendared, and became paper only. I was told decision would be in 60 days..should have been monday. Is their case law I can refer to, or a way to ask the judge without upsetting her? My kids and I really need the money, meanwhile he traveled to his home in Costa Rica and back yet again.
A: There is nothing to be done. Depending on how busy the courts and how complicated the motion is it sometimes takes more than 60 days to get a decision. If you write to the judge of anyone else that the decision is overdue, you may wind up with a quick decision NOT in your favor.
