I'm preparing to go to court with my ex to set a schedule a new schedule up for DS5, she emailed me the motion to approve of it before she sends it out in there it says "The Defendant is an interested party acting in good faith who has insufficient means to defray the expense of this litigation" will that hurt my case that that is in there??

Ahhh, I see. It shouldn't have anything to do with setting up a new schedule. Your income only really has to do with CS matters.

It means the defendant cannot afford to pay for this to go to court. If money is an issue, mediation might be a better option if the parties cannot agree.

I believe all that is saying is that the defendent wants the plaintiff to pay for court expenses???  Maybe??? Are you taking your ex to court or is he taking you?

if she put it in there, i wouldn't think it would hurt you. i'd assume she knows what she's doing.

It means she cannot afford to fight about the schedule and draw this out. Every single paper clip an attorney uses is charged to the person and the attorney is making it known that the defendant cannot afford for this to take up any more time. I have never seen this put in a motion and I see no point in it. To me, it is telling the other party that they cannot afford to fight....it would tell me that if I object, they will have to cave because they cannot afford to keep using an attorney for this.
