I went to court this morning for the kids custody hearing and it was postponed until November 22. In a flurry of about two minutes this is what happened.
My attorney: Let’s go Ms. Brown, they are ready for you. Are the parents here?
Me: No sir, you didn’t tell me to get them here.
My attorney: Are the children with you?
Me: No sir, you didn’t tell me to bring them either.
Another man I had never met: Ms. Brown are the children with you?
Me: No sir. Who are you?
The man I had never met: I am the childrens’ advocate. I need to see them as soon as possible.
Me: No response, just a very questioning look.
We walk inside the courtroom. The judge stares at me but says nothing.
Me: Good morning Your Honor.
Judge: No response.
My Attorney: Your Honor, we do not have the parents or the children here and the home inspection has not been done yet.
Judge: Postpone this hearing until the 22nd.
That was it.
The man I had never met asked me to go to his office across the street and set up an appointment for him to meet with the children. I did that. They go to see him this afternoon.
I went to the Department of Human Resources and met with the woman who is supposed to do the Home Inspection. She told me that she was just notified on Friday afternoon that she was supposed to do the home inspection. We have it scheduled for November first.
Does it sound like someone or several someone’s are not doing their jobs to you, or is it just me that thinks that?
I will tell you this is the most legal wrangling event I have ever been through.
