Q: PETITIONED FOR CUSTODY OF CHILDREN HAVE A COURT DATE AND CAN NOT APPEAR WHAT WILL THE JUDGE DO TO ME.
A: You may apply to appear by phone. If you cannot appear at all that day, send a letter to the Judge requesting the adjournment (providing the reason and any corroboration). That may/may not be sufficient to secure the adjournment. You’re best advised to schedule a consult with a Westchester Family Law attorney for a full assessment.
