Legal Question in Family Law in California

My Mother was served with an Order to Show Cause for me to appear at mediation next Thursday before Christmas with my Exhusband/Father to my two children. Court is January 10, 2012 and my questions are: 1. Can they legally serve my Mother? 2. She was served on Dec. 12 for mediation on the Dec 22 but I did not get the paperwork until today, December 15, 1 week before mediation. How am I to reply with such short notice prior to the mediation date? 3. What do I do to postpone the mediation date?

Not employed at this time and have no funds for an attorney.

Go to court and explain to the court how you were served and ask for a continuance and a new mediation date.
