Legal Answers
Q. Does a lawyer have to file a notice of appearance before a court date?
A: Basically you can hire counsel as long as you find one who will take your case. Occasionally counsel is brought in late in the proceedings and asks for a Continuance which the Court can allow. This may be the concern you have- delay of the proceedings. Occasionally counsel brought in may have a prior association with the Judge so that there could be a recusal and hence delay in obtaining another judge. Also, if a Trial has already started, then the Court would need to agree to the substitution of counsel. This may also involve continuance requests.
Q. What do I do if I’m paying child support and being denied visitation rights to my daughter
A: If you have a visitation order or a Judgment that states the terms of visitation and are being denied visitation , then there appear to be grounds for a Contempt action unless there is something happening which is inimical to the child's best interests in which case the custodial parent should have filed an appropriate Modification. You should go over the facts with a domestic relations practitioner who can bring forward a Contempt action if so advised and you can have counsel fees be awarded to you potentially!
Q. Can I talk to my sons doctors/providers about his treatment while emergency temporary custody is with his grandparents?
A: It appears that you will need legal representation in a guardianship dispute and you can file a Motion for appointment of counsel by the Court if you are indigent. If you are not indigent then you should engage counsel once you are able to do so. It appears that you will need to take care of your own mental health first so that you would be in a position to make decisions for the child who has some difficulties. Without having the orders extant reviewed by counsel , whether or not you have authority to obtain medical records at this point in time is unclear and there are confidentiality concerns of the child, also in issue. The Court can appoint a guardian ad litem to investigate the best interests of the child and potentially also a privilege waiver guardian ad litem if the Court so finds the need.
