I have missed court dates due to random hospital visits. Does Bronx Family Court verify that these documents are true or not?

Q: my lawyer is a pain regarding medical documentation she claims is necessary for family court. i dont have any reason to lie but going back to the hospital to obtain that information isn’t always easy or fast. i dont know how the court even verifies that i was there because they arent allowed access to my information (so i’m guessing). Can they verify the information i give them I.E- discharge papers or papers describing my ailment(s)

A: David’s Answer: It’s not up to the Court to gather evidence or “verify” anything. It’s up to you to gather & produce admissible evidence to buttress your case. You can always attempt to have the Hospital mail/fax you the information. Call a Bronx Family Law attorney for more info.
