A: Oral argument rarely if ever determines if how motions are won or lost. What you really need to do is to retain an experienced matrimonial attorney. You are emotionally involved, you are not a trained attorney and no matter how well educated you are, you cannot represent yourself. Abe Lincoln once said, "An attorney who represents himself (now herself as well) has a fool for a client". I wish you the best of luck, but you are going to need to retain counsel after this.
