In February DH and I go to our final court date to modify custody. We have already met with the CASA and done everything we can... We have a half day hearing (3 hours) set, and I was just wondering what was going to take place during these three hours? I can't imagine talking to the judge for 3 hours straight. Any one been through this that can help me out? Short background: SDs lived with DH and me for 4 months after BM lost job and trailor, then we asked BM for custody and she took them back (to live with her at her parents house) and our court date will be 5 days shy of a year from when she took them back. BM claims I beat the kids (couldn't be further from the truth) and that's the only thing she has to say in court, she has nothing else to complain about. We have so much stuff to tell the judge about her. I'm sure some of the time will be spent addressing these things... but what else. And then if we did get custody does it happen immediately that day? Or do they set a date?
