trial of merit
I am trying to retain another attorney. I met with one today and he said I should file for a trial of merit or merits? What does that mean?
He also stated that my ex needs a mental evaluation. My previous lawyer suggested this 2 times and it has not happened. What benefit will an evaluation do? I believe she is bipolar but I was under the impression that does not impact a custody case?
Curently we have joint physical/legal custody. We have been to court 2 times in the past 4 months. My ex did not abide by the first court order of 4 November, and she is not abiding by the second court order dated 2 Feb 2006. The judge put several stipulations on her, and she is already in contempt of those stipulations. I am worried going into a full trial.
