Q: When do you get an order after trial and decision in family court
Relocation trial ended in April 2023. Decision from Bench June 2023. Order to stay until school started which is in 2 days. No order provided yet. Do they serve it or do I have to pick it up?
We here are not clerks of court and cannot render opinions as to how to obtain court orders.
We here are also well aware of the enormous difficulty government has in keeping straight records in a court environment. Corners may have been cut. It may very well be that the judge's order was delivered from the bench and the asker needs to obtain trial transcripts and move to have them so ordered. Alternatively, the clerk of court may have failed to mail copies to the parties and counsel. In that case, the asker must travel to the appropriate court house and ask for a copy from the clerk's record room.
