Tomorrow is my FIRST divorce hearing. I was just declined legal aid today...will I be able to ask for an extension to seek legal aid. He is asking for Full Primary custody and child support. He can't prove me an unfit mother but because he had the hearing set for 2 wks after I.was discharged from hospital I'm afraid I don't know what to expect. He has a lawyer (which he sold some of the stuff in the house to get)should I be worried? Please help.

I have no clue but just explain the situation to the Judge

Your STBX is a POS and you will probably be better off without him. Do you have a place to live now???

I dont know where you live but there are attorneys that will take payments or do pro bono considering all attorneys have to do so many hours community service. The judge should grant you some time since you just got out of the hospital. If you have paperwork stating you just got out of the hospital I would bring it with you. If you have allot of questions consult with an atttorney or a court advocate. Sorry couldnt be more helpful allot of things depend on your location.

Can you prove this to the judge yourself?

The physical abuse to the girls no I was at work but I requested a CASA worker and I.was granted an extension. I already had CPS to the apt by my request to.check out the apt.
