Q: can I win if I summit a motion for default?
I went to pre trial on march based on my motion for contempt and modified time sharing that i put in the courts against my son father and the judge told my son father at Pre trial that he have 20 days to respond back to my motion. its been over a month and he have not responded and it was ordered by the judge. can I win my motion for what I was asking for?
A: Motions do not typically require responses. However, a responsive motion or an Answer is required in response to a supplemental petition for modification. You may want to see if you can schedule another status conference with the judge. Additionally, if this was a pre-trial conference, there should be a trial scheduled. The trial may address both the pending motion as well as the Supplemental Petition for Modification of the timesharing.
